CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Liz Cheney's final campaign finance report from her five-month run against Wyoming U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi shows she had only one-third as much money as Enzi just before she quit the race.

As of Dec. 31, Enzi had $1.8 million and Cheney $612,000. Cheney ended her Republican primary challenge against Enzi on Jan. 6, citing health issues in her family.

Cheney had struggled to gain acceptance among mainstream Republicans, most of whom endorsed Enzi. She was also left to fend off allegations that she was a carpetbagger after only moving to Wyoming in 2012.

From July through September, Enzi raised less money than Cheney, former Vice President Dick Cheney's elder daughter.

That flipped in the last three months of 2013, when Cheney raised less than Enzi and spent more than she raised.
