Democrat prepares to challenge Lummis
The Casper Democrat running against Wyoming U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis is a political newcomer who says
he wants to represent the interests of working families.
Chris Henrichsen is a 35-year-old political science instructor
at Casper College. He filed paperwork on Thursday declaring his
candidacy to run against Lummis.
Lummis announced on Monday that she's seeking a third term as
Wyoming's lone member of the U.S. House of Representatives. A
Republican, she served earlier as Wyoming treasurer and in the
Registered Republicans outnumber Democrats roughly three-to-one
in the state.
Henrichsen acknowledges he lacks Lummis' public name-recognition
and deep pockets. But he says he intends to campaign hard around
the state with the hope that many people will cross party lines to
vote for him.
