Is it McCain v Cheney in Wyoming? Politico’s Playbook had this:
2014 WATCH – AL HUNT SCOOP — “McCain Volunteers Campaign Help for Enzi After Cheney Challenge,” by Bloomberg’s Julie Hirschfeld Davis : “Senator John McCain volunteered to campaign for Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi, who’s facing a challenge from Republican Liz Cheney … ‘I have grown to admire and respect Mike Enzi — I’ll tell you, he’s one of these solid guys,’ McCain, 76, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s ‘Political Capital with Al Hunt,’ airing this weekend. ‘I know nothing that Mike Enzi would do that didn’t deserve re-election. … the epitome of a workhorse … I don’t know a person in our conference that doesn’t admire, respect, and have great affection for’ Enzi.”
From The Hill: Wyoming Senate race between Cheney, Enzi is new battle in GOP’s war
Liz Cheney has opened a new front in the battle for the soul of the Republican Party with her decision to challenge Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.). The fight pits conservatives willing to work across the aisle with a newer breed that views compromise as defeat.
“When you look at how conservative Sen. Enzi is, my fear is this won’t be an ideological campaign, which is the type of clash I welcome. It will be a personality-style campaign more than anything else,” Ari Fleischer, who served as White House Press Secretary for President George W. Bush, told The Hill. “Races of that nature tend to become more harmful and divisive over time, and more uncomfortable for everyone involved.”
“Everybody agrees on the importance of compromise for the good of the nation. But I believe there comes a moment where you have to tell the difference between compromise and capitulation,” Cheney told The Hill.

From mccain’s unending support for amnesty for illegal aliens to his less-than-room-temperature Presidential bid to his repeated “gang” affiliations in the Senate, he has proven himself to be little more than a democrat/socialist registered with the Republican party.
As a politician, mccain has been an unmitigated disaster, and continues to be a cautionary tale about the evils of “compromise”.
“When you compromise with the devil, the devil always comes out ahead.”

The old guard, moderate Republican grasp on DC will never abate until we install articulate, aggressive CONSERVATIVE leaders. Enzi is not a bad guy. Just not a leader. When is the last time you saw him on the national stage, telling the truth about the corruption, ineptitude, self-serving ruling class in our nation’s capital?
Liz Cheney gets it. She can not be defeated in debate on any topic. She is deeply educated, solidly conservative, and will jump to the front of the pack to lead our nation back to sanity.
My analogy is the Broncos. Jake Plummer is a good quarterback. Peyton Manning is, well, Peyton Manning! Who would you rather have run the offense?

It’s my view the people of Wyoming are fully capable of choosing who they wish to represent their state without the influence of outside interests. Perhaps it’s time some restrictions are in order to insure state politics remain just that. Perhaps states should consider prohibiting or strictly limiting the introduction of outside money and PAC advertising. It is our business who we elect so let’s keep politics at home!
