Liz Cheney: 'I Am Not Pro-Gay Marriage'


'I am strongly pro-life and I am not pro-gay marriage'...'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.”

- Liz Cheney responds to a Wyoming push-poll that led voters to believe that she “aggressively promotes gay marriage.”

She is running against incumbent Republican Sen. Mike Enzi in Wyoming

The Cheney for Senate campaign has received reports that there is a “push poll” underway in the state in which those conducting the poll are lying about Liz Cheney’s views on two important issues. Wyoming citizens who have received the calls have reported that the callers ask, “Are you aware that Liz Cheney supports abortion and aggressively promotes gay marriage?”

“This is dirty tricks politics at its worst,” said Celeste Colgan, Cheney campaign spokesperson, “It is sad and completely out of character with the way we run campaigns here in Wyoming to see the Enzi camp stoop to this level.”

Liz Cheney Statement- “I am strongly pro-life and I am not pro-gay marriage. 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. The people of Wyoming deserve an honest campaign. They should not be subject to the kind of dirty tricks this push poll represents. I call on Senator Enzi to denounce this poll and to tell the National Republican Senatorial Committee, or anyone else promoting untruths on his behalf, to stop.”
