WASHINGTON (AP) — Published reports citing anonymous GOP insiders say Liz Cheney plans to quit the Republican Wyoming Senate primary and abandon her effort to unseat incumbent Sen. Mike Enzi.

The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney moved her family from Virginia to Wyoming to run for the seat. Her effort to replace Enzi, a Senate veteran, angered and upset many Republicans and her campaign faced a number of problems.

In November, Cheney said she opposed gay marriage, sparking a public feud with her sister, Mary, who is a lesbian and married. Cheney will reportedly cite family reasons when she announces her withdrawal from the contest. The development was reported by CNN, The New York Times and Politico. Cheney did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.
