Liz Cheney Calls on Senator Enzi to Denounce ” Push Poll ”
In a statement Friday Liz Cheney, who is running for the U.S. Senate in Wyoming against incumbant Republican Republican Sen. Mike Enzi, accused the Enzi campaign of conducting a “push poll” in the state, which asks “Are you aware that Liz Cheney supports abortion and aggressively promotes gay marriage?” The Enzi campaign flatly denied it conducted the poll.
“I am strongly pro-life and I am not pro-gay marriage,” Cheney said in a statement, adding that she believes “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. She called 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.
Enzi’s spokesperson, Coy Knobel flatly denied Cheney’s charge.
