Liz Cheney Wins Dad's Old Job as Wyoming's lone US House Representative

Posted in

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Liz Cheney has won the Wyoming U.S. House seat formerly held by her father. Cheney beat Democrat Ryan Greene of Rock Springs. Greene is an employee in his family's oilfield services business.

Neither Cheney nor Greene has held elected office, but Cheney prevailed with much wider name recognition. She is former Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter and a former Fox News commentator. Cheney's campaign took a tough stance against the federal government. She says too much regulation is killing Wyoming's coal industry.
