Liz Cheney, the oldest daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney, is dropping her bid to be the Republican senate candidate for Wyoming, US media reported late Sunday.
CNN, citing unnamed sources, said that Liz Cheney, 47, could make the announcement official as early as Monday. Politico said the announcement could come this week.
Cheney is running for a Senate seat in the state of Wyoming against a fellow Republican incumbent in a primary next year. The western state is solidly Republican, so the primary winner is nearly certain to defeat their Democratic opponent.
