Liz Cheney looks bound to be a congresswoman. The 49-year-old lawyer—and eldest daughter of Dick Cheney—won Wyoming's Republican primary race by a wide margin Tuesday to become the nominee for the state's lone House seat. She'll now face Democrat Ryan Greene in November, but the GOP candidate usually cruises to victory, reports Reuters. Assuming she wins, she'll hold the seat her father once held. "We're facing a huge number of challenges now, both in terms of the threats we face from Washington, as well as the threats to our security from radical Islamic terrorism, and those are the things I'm going to be focused on," Cheney tells the AP. (She dropped her bid for a Senate seat two years ago.)
