Cheyenne, Wy – A Republican challenger to incumbent Rep. Barbara Cubin leveled his first attacks against her.
Bruce Asay says the illness of Cubin's husband is no excuse for her missing votes in Congress.
The Cheyenne attorney says Wyoming's voice has not been heard in
Congress because Cubin has missed too many votes in the last year and a half.
Cubin has defended her absences as her personal decision to be with her gravely ill husband.
Cubin campaign manager Katie Legerski issued a statement, saying Cubin has worked hard on a number of issues that benefited Wyoming. The Republican Cubin is seeking a sixth term in the House.
