I’ll Be Back Says Former Republican Candidate Liz Cheney After Dropping Out of a Senate Race in Wyoming

Yes, Everyone Should Take That as a Credible Threat

When the daughter of former Vice President Dick Chaney, Liz Chaney dropped out of a primary race contesting the Republican nomination for Senate in Wyoming she cited personal family issue.  This may have been correct in that Ms. Chaney has also dropped out of public events, presumably to attend to those issues.  One hopes that she and her family do recover and that there is no lasting damage.

And now Politico is reporting that Ms. Chaney had told supporters she was not finished with public life and would be running somewhere for something.

One listener recalled the candidate’s message, paraphrasing her words: “At some point, I will be running for something else. This isn’t the right time for my family.” A second listener confirmed the general message she expressed on the call.

Now with most politicians it is easy to speculate on their next race, but with Ms. Chaney it could be anything.  See this long time resident of Virginia with no real ties to Wyoming chose to move to that state and challenge a highly conservative incumbent.  So given that proclivity she could do anything.  For example she might move to Texas and run for Governor, or move to Kansas and run for the state railroad commission or move to England and run for Parliament.  When you are a conservative and daughter of a prominent conservative you can move anywhere and run for anything, no qualifications necessary.You're entitled.
