Cheney Will Drop Out of Wyoming Senate Race

Liz Cheney (R) will drop her U.S. Senate primary challenge against Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY), sources are telling news outlets including the Casper Star-Tribune.

Cheney made the decision after "a recent incident involving a close member of Cheney's immediate family prompted her to reconsider the race, among other factors," Politico reports.

Said Cheney: "Serious health issues have recently arisen in our family, and under the circumstances, I have decided to discontinue my campaign. My children and their futures were the motivation for our campaign and their health and well-being will always be my overriding priority."
