CHEYENNE – Calling her a western fighter and gritty Wyoming champion, Sens. Mike Enzi and John Barrasso, both R-Wyo., announced Tuesday their support for Cynthia Lummis in the race for U.S. Senate.
“I served in the Wyoming House of Representatives with Cynthia Lummis. She was effective. I served in the Wyoming Senate with her. She was a leader and a successful legislator,” Enzi said in a news release. “When I came to the U.S. Senate, she became a world-renowned state treasurer, another area of expertise. Then she successfully ran for our lone seat in Congress. She was a formidable campaigner.
“She did a spectacular job for eight years, and founded the Western Caucus that gave us the clout to preserve Wyoming’s Abandoned Mine Land money and much more. She is a uniter we need. Cynthia will put Wyoming first and be a force to be reckoned with in Washington.”
Barrasso said, “Now, more than ever, Wyoming needs a gritty champion for our conservative values. Filling Mike’s shoes is no small task, and taking on Washington’s big spenders and bigger government will require someone that has proven they can do it and win. Bobbi and I support Cynthia because she is all these things.
“I know Cynthia will stand side by side with me in support of President Trump and for policies that are right for Wyoming,” Barrasso continued. “I will work for her, vote for her, and fight alongside her.”
Lummis thanked both Enzi and Barrasso for their endorsements, promising to work day in and day out as part of Wyoming’s “small, but mighty” congressional delegation.
“Wyoming’s congressional delegation is truly the gold standard,” Lummis said in the release. “Senator Enzi and Senator Barrasso are giants in the U.S. Senate, and I am beyond honored to have their support. Should I be elected as Wyoming’s next senator, I look forward to working side by side with Senator Barrasso and Congressman Cheney on behalf of our great state.”
