Elizabeth Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, will run for Wyoming's lone House seat as a Republican, she announced Monday night on Facebook -- from Virginia.
"At this perilous time," Cheney wrote, "we must have a strong, conservative voice representing Wyoming in the U.S. House of Representatives. I am running because I will be that voice." There was one big problem: Cheney's post was geotagged -- from Alexandria, Virginia. (The geotag has since been removed.)
Cheney, a television pundit whose previous foray into Wyoming politics was a spectacularly failed primary campaign against Sen. Mike Enzi (R), may have an easier time winning the state's open House seat than she did trying to oust a sitting senator. But if she's trying to portray herself as a Wyoming native rather than a fixture of the Washington, D.C. elite, she's off to a bad start.
