Stop the presses! Dick Cheney's daughter Liz, a former State Department employee, has thrown her massive influence behind…Mitt Romney. Apparently because Fred Thompson opted out of the race in order to take fuller advantage of the breakfast specials at Waffle House:
After Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee decided to drop out of the presidential election race last week, Liz Cheney wondered about the next candidate she could support.
On Sunday, a statement released by Mitt Romney's campaign, indicated that Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter has opted to support Romney's campaign as a senior foreign policy adviser.
"I am proud to support Gov. Romney. Throughout this campaign, he has distinguished himself as a leader who can guide our country with a clear vision for overcoming the threats we face today," Cheney said in the statement, according to Fox News.
