American Principles Fund, a conservative super-PAC, unleashed a TV ad in Wyoming on Monday attacking GOP Senate candidate Liz Cheney, saying she is insufficiently opposed to gay marriage.

Cheney, who is challenging incumbent Sen. Mike Enzi in the Republican primary, issued a statement this summer saying she was "not pro-gay marriage," Politico reports.

But the ad shows Cheney saying on MSNBC in 2009 that she applauded the U.S. State Department’s decision to provide benefits to same-sex partners.

Story continues below video.



"In Wyoming, Cheney campaigns as a conservative," the ad's narrator says. "In Washington, she appears on MSNBC to campaign against a marriage amendment and support government benefits for gay couples."

Liz Cheney’s younger sister Mary is gay and married to her partner. Liz and Mary's father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, has voiced support for same-sex marriage.

Liz Cheney's campaign struck back at the ad.

“This is a dishonest smear by an out-of-state super-PAC,” spokeswoman Kara Ahern said, according to Politico. "The people of Wyoming deserve better."
