Liz Cheney: ‘I Am Not Pro-Gay Marriage’

Wyoming senatorial candidate Liz Cheney definitively stated her opposition to gay marriage on Friday, despite the pro-marriage stance of her father Dick Cheney, and her sister Mary Cheney, who married her partner last year.

“I am strongly pro-life and I am not pro-gay marriage,” declared Cheney in a campaign statement. “I believe the issue of marriage must be decided by the states, and by the people in the states, not by judges and not even by legislators, but by the people themselves.”

Cheney issued the statement because she felt opponent (and friend of her father’s) Mike Enzi was “distorting her views” on the issue via a robocall that asked respondents, “Are you aware that Liz Cheney supports abortion and aggressively promotes gay marriage?”

“The people of Wyoming deserve an honest campaign,” Cheney said. “They should not be subject to the kind of dirty tricks this push poll represents.”

The Enzi campaign denies involvement in the robocall.
