CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — County records show U.S. Senate candidate Liz Cheney and her husband were late paying their first property taxes on the $1.6 million home they bought last year in the tony northwest Wyoming community of Jackson Hole.

They owed almost $4,500 in taxes on the four-bedroom, four-bath log home for the first half of 2012. The money was due by Nov. 10. Teton County records show they didn't pay until Jan. 29.

Cheney is the elder daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney and is running against Wyoming senior U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi, a fellow Republican.

Liz Cheney and her husband bought the house in May 2012. She says she thought the previous owners paid the property tax bill for the first half of 2012 at closing.

She says she paid when she realized the oversight.
