Liz Cheney flatly declared on Friday that she is "not pro-gay marriage."

Cheney, a Republican running for the U.S. Senate in Wyoming, made the policy statement after accusing the campaign of incumbent Republican Sen. Mike Enzi of distorting her views on the subject through a campaign push poll.

"I am strongly pro-life and I am not pro-gay marriage," Cheney said in a statement released by her campaign. "I believe the issue of marriage must be decided by the states, and by the people in the states, not by judges and not even by legislators, but by the people themselves."
