Supporters of Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) clearly want to make marriage -- and gay marriage -- an issue in Enzi's Senate GOP primary race against Liz Cheney.
In a new TV ad, the outside group the American Principles Fund features former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) calling Enzi a protector of "traditional marriage." Huckabee goes on to say, "He believes a mom and dad just do a better job raising kids than a government ever can do. Mike brings Wyoming values to Washington. Not the other way around."
(The American Principles Fund is run in part by Huckabee's daughter, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.)
This TV ad is a not-so-subtle swipe at Enzi's primary opponent Liz Cheney, whose sister Mary is gay and married. However, Liz Cheney recently said she opposes gay marriage.
It's also the group's second TV ad on the topic of gay marriage in this Senate GOP primary.
The script of this ad:
Mike Enzi is a champion of life and liberty.
Mike's a principled conservative who is not the kind of guy who has to wake up each morning asking himself: 'What do I believe?'
Mike's always voted to protect traditional marriage… and he believes a mom and dad just do a better job raising kids than a government ever can do.
Mike brings Wyoming values to Washington. Not the other way around."
