Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus tells Newsmax TV that he is not troubled that Liz Cheney is challenging longtime Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi in next year's primary.

"These are healthy debates and, obviously, when I was chairman in Wisconsin, Scott Walker was seriously challenged by another good member of Congress, a good conservative – and Ron Johnson had his share of opponents in the Senate," he tells Newsmax in an exclusive interview.



Johnson was elected to the Senate in 2011. Walker last year became the only governor in the nation's history to survive a recall election.

Cheney, a political commentator and daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, said last month that she would challenge Enzi, who is Wyoming's senior U.S. senator. Enzi is seeking his fourth six-year term.

Her move has drawn criticism from some Republicans, and Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah recently told Newsmax that he believed Cheney should quit the race.

Cheney recently moved to Wyoming from Virginia. She trails Enzi in recent polls of the state's voters.

"If you've got a good party structure, you've got candidates that are well trained and able to watch their mouth, stay on message, and stick to the principles of our party, we're going to be just fine – and especially in Wyoming," Priebus tells Newsmax. "It's a red state – and one thing we know for sure is that we will have a Republican senator from Wyoming."
