Lummis Announces Run for Senate
Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis announced her intentions today to run for U.S. Senate, following current Sen. Mike Enzi’s announcement in May that he will not seek reelection in 2020.
In her announcement, Lummis said she can no longer watch from the sidelines as the Wyoming way of life is threatened by “liberal ideologues in DC.”
“Washington simply can’t seem to keep its nose out of Wyoming’s business,” Lummis said in the announcement. “The heartbreaking layoffs in Campbell County are an example of this. People back here in Wyoming are continuing to be devastated by Obama-era policies aimed at regulating our natural resources out of existence.”
Lummis served eight years in Congress and was a founding member of the Freedom Caucus. She also served eight years as Wyoming State Treasurer and 14 years in the State Legislature.
Since leaving Congress in 2017, Lummis has been working with her brother and sister on the family ranch and businesses.
