Nelson Withdraws From House Race

Cheyenne, Wy – Cheyenne motivational speaker Swede Nelson
says he's backing out of the race for Wyoming's seat in the U.S.
House.
Nelson is a Republican. He says his daughters and grandchildren
have become more important and he doesn't have enough funding to
continue.
Nelson announced his campaign in September. He says his campaign
has been an "extraordinary experience" that he will never forget.
That leaves four Republican candidates vying to replace Rep.
Barbara Cubin, who is not seeking re-election. They are retired
Navy officer Bill Winney, former state Treasurer Cynthia Lummis,
Buffalo-area rancher Mark Gordon and state Rep. Dan Zwonitzer.
Gary Trauner is the only Democrat running for Congress in
Wyoming.
