For Wyoming, Cheney Sisters’ Squabble Over Same-Sex Marriage Barely Registers

The Cheney family feud over same-sex marriage is unlikely to have a lasting, adverse effect on Liz Cheney’s bid for Senate in Wyoming.

After moving her family to the state last year, the larger concern for Cheney is proving her Wyoming roots and making a rational case for the need to replace Sen. Michael B. Enzi, whom Cheney is challenging in the GOP primary.

To be sure, Cheney’s squabble with her sister, who is a lesbian, adds another distraction in an already uphill primary challenge. But in this small state where handshakes go a long way and campaigns usually kick off late, there is still plenty of time before the Aug. 19 primary.

“If the vote were today, everybody knows which way it would go,” said Joe Milczewski, a former campaign manager for Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo. “But the vote’s not today. We’re still nine months to Election Day.”

Cheney’s comments about her opposition to same-sex marriage on “Fox News Sunday” led to a public airing of grievances by her sister, Mary Cheney, and Mary’s wife, Heather Poe, including in an interview with The New York Times.
