CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Liz Cheney used a Tea Party rally to criticize Sen. Mike Enzi, saying Wyoming needs a better leader to defend it from Washington's "war on coal".
Saturday's rally in Big Horn County was one of the rare occasions in which the two have been in the same place at the same time since Cheney announced she would challenge him next year.
Cheney said the "sitting senator" shouldn't just list problems but come up solutions and fight for them.
The Casper Star-Tribune reported that more people stood to applaud Cheney than Enzi. He spoke first and didn't criticize her.
Afterward, Enzi said he's working hard to make sure the administration will do the right thing with coal. He said Cheney doesn't have a voting record, freeing her to say whatever she wants.
