Don't expect business as usual if Wyoming voters elect her to the Senate, Liz Cheney says.

"Compromising with this president's radical agenda is only going to result in a loss of the freedoms and the values and the very nature of the nation that we all love so much," Cheney said Monday on Rush Limbaugh's radio show.

Saying she is ready to "stand and fight," the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney said she entered the race because she is "deeply concerned about what's happening in Washington and what it means for the state of Wyoming."

On July 16, Cheney announced that she would challenge incumbent Republican Mike Enzi in a GOP primary for his Wyoming Senate seat. Enzi has served as Wyoming senator since 1997.

Describing herself as a "constitutional conservative," Cheney voiced concerns not only about Democratic policies, but also with politicians within her own party.

"When I hear leaders of the Republican Party saying we need to move to the left, we need to moderate, you know, that is a recipe for disaster," Cheney said. "What we need are people who can stand up and explain why we believe what we believe, why we believe in a limited government and low taxes and a strong national defense, and why we believe in the free enterprise system — because it's raised more people out of poverty than any system that's ever existed."
