Liz Cheney Joins Romney Team

Ms. Cheney, a former Fredhead, has signed onto Mitt Romney‘s presidential campaign as a senior foreign policy adviser.

Liz Cheney, 41, is the elder of Dick and Lynne Cheney‘s two daughters. Her younger sister, Mary, has been more prominently in the public eye after revealing she is a lesbian and having a son last year with her partner, Heather Poe, despite the administration’s opposition to gay marriage.

Liz Cheney, the mother of five children, said in a statement: “Throughout his campaign, (Romney) has distinguished himself as a leader who can guide our country with a clear vision for overcoming the threats we face today. … I look forward to working with Governor Romney because he is the leader our country needs.”

Romney said Liz Cheney brings the campaign “years of experience helping to formulate America’s foreign policy and to advance democracy and reform in the Middle East.”

She  most recently worked at the State Department:

Liz Cheney Is A Former High-Ranking State Department Official With Years Of Experience Helping To Formulate America’s Foreign Policy. Most recently, Cheney served as the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs. As the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, she was the second-ranking State Department official overseeing U.S. policy in the Middle East. She helped develop and oversee programs to promote democracy and reform in the Arab world. Before joining the State Department, she served at the U.S. Agency for International Development, the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank, and as an attorney at White & Case LLP. Cheney was also a National Campaign Co-Chair for the Fred Thompson presidential campaign.

  1. Seeing how I love the Cheneys, my liking for Romney has increased. Still a little undecided: and probably will be until the Republicans choose their candidate. Then I’ll be quite decided.
