CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming's Mike Enzi has won the Republican primary election for U.S. Senate, beating four challengers as he seeks a fourth term.

The 70-year-old Enzi says he's seeking another term because his seniority on several Senate committees serves Wyoming's interests. His priorities include simplifying the tax code.

Enzi's most serious challenger had been Liz Cheney, the elder daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney. She had difficulty getting mainstream Republicans to back her candidacy and, citing family health issues, dropped out of the race in January.

He defeated Bryan Miller of Sheridan, Thomas Bleming of Lusk, Arthur Bruce Clifton of Cheyenne and James Gregory of Jackson, in Tuesday's primary.
