CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – Liz Cheney has had a quiet first term as congresswoman, but that’s about to change. She’s seeking a House Republican leadership post that’s key to her party’s strategy against next year’s Democratic majority.If she succeeds, Cheney will be the only woman in House Republican leadership – and follow in the footsteps of her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, who won the same post more than 30 years ago.She is seeking the position of GOP conference chair, which would put her at the forefront of the House GOP’s communications strategy when Democrats take over the chamber in January. House Republicans are looking for a more forceful approach to communications.
