Rock Springs, WY (5/6/19) – This past Saturday, long time Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi announced that he would not be seeking re-election in 2020. Current Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney issued the following statement on her web site concerning Enzi’s announcement:

“For more than four decades, Mike Enzi has devoted himself to serving our state and the country. He never forgot where he came from and always put the interests of Wyoming first, constantly championing our Western way of life.

“During his 20 years in Washington, he brought our state’s values to the nation’s capital, fighting for a smaller, less obstructive, and more efficient federal government that would allow people to grow and thrive. He recognized that empowering people, not politicians, was the best way to expand opportunity, and he worked tirelessly towards that goal.

“I’m privileged to have had the opportunity to work alongside him for the people of Wyoming and am proud to call him a friend. He, his wife Diana, three children and all his grandchildren deserve thanks from a state and nation that is indebted to him for his lifetime of service.”

In 2013, Cheney, daughter of former Vice President and Wyoming Congressman Dick Cheney, announced her intentions to run against Enzi in the 2014 election.  She withdrew from the race in January 2014.

Cheney won the 2016 and 2018 General Election for Wyoming’s lone seat in the House of Representatives.
