CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Liz Cheney is outraising competitors in her bid for a U.S. House seat, bringing in over $730,000.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1VhmE5i) a state lawmaker has raised the second-highest amount at over $125,000. Casper Republican Rep. Tim Stubson loaned half of that to his campaign.

Cheney has donations from her parents, the George W. Bushes, Donald Rumsfeld, Karl Rove, and others. She contributed almost $27,000 of her own money.

Republican Rep. Cynthia Lummis is vacating her seat in the U.S. House and a dozen people are vying for her spot, including 10 Republicans, Democrat Ryan Greene and independent candidate John Meena.

The primary is set for Aug. 16 with a general election on Nov. 8.
