A year and a half ago, Don Wills helped to form a new political party in Wyoming, called the Country Party. Today, he is challenging Representative Cynthia Lummis for her seat in the US House.
A business owner in the computer industry, Wills says his aim is to challenge what he calls liberal, progressive Republicans, and to raise the new party’s conservative profile. He says there are two main parts of his agenda—the first: the deficit.
"My recommendation for solutions to the spending problem is drastic cuts to all aspects of the federal government, including defense, including increasing the effective age of social security and medicare for seniors, for future generations. "
Wills’ other main focus is what he calls the overreach of federal government. On the chopping block, he says, would be the Department of Education and most of the Department of Energy.
