CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi has made a few late tax payments on his house in Gillette since he started in the Senate in 1996.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports ( ) Campbell County records show Enzi and his wife Diana were late on property tax payments on their home in Gillette in 1999, 2000 and 2008. They paid interest on the late payments.

Enzi is facing challenger Liz Cheney in next year's Republican primary. Records show Cheney and her husband also were late paying property taxes on the Teton County home they purchased last year.

Enzi spokesman Coy Knobel says the senator has been paying property taxes in Wyoming for 40 years and that he's always paid the bill with interest if he was ever late.
