Cheney family splits on same-sex marriage

By  | 

Liz Cheney's bid for Wyoming's Senate seat has created a rift in the politically active family over the issue of same-sex marriage.

Cheney, who is challenging Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., in the Republican primary, said on "Fox News Sunday" that she disagrees with her openly gay sister, Mary, on gay marriage.

"I love Mary very much. I love her family very much. This is just an issue in which we disagree," said Liz Cheney, whose father, Dick, was vice president under George W. Bush. Dick Cheney has been supportive of states making the decision to legalize same-sex marriage.

Liz Cheney followed in her father's opposition to federal action on same-sex marriage. She said "it's an issue that's got to be left up to the state," but also added that, "I do believe in the traditional definition of marriage."
