Following allegations of carpetbagging, fishing-license infractions, and light voter fraud, sources tell CNN that Liz Cheney is ending her run for the Senate from Wyoming. The eldest daughter of the former VP “began telling associates of her decision over the weekend and could make an official announcement about the race as early as Monday,” according to CNN. Cheney is challenging three-term incumbent Senator Mike Enzi in the Republican primary, and two polls found she’s losing badly. On the plus side, thanks to her public feud with her lesbian sister over gay marriage, Liz now knows she’s Dick and Lynne Cheney’s favorite daughter.
