Wyoming Senate-Barrasso Wins

Wyoming Senate-Barrasso Wins

Barrasso wins Wyoming Senate race


The Associated Press - November 7, 2018

CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Republican John Barrasso has won a second full term by defeating Democrat Gary Trauner in Wyoming's Senate race.

The race was a referendum on President Donald Trump in the state. Barrasso argued that less federal regulation and federal income tax cuts enacted under Trump are helping Wyoming's economy.

Voters didn't buy Trauner's argument that people in Wyoming still struggle with low wages and the Trump administration is doing more harm than good.

Barrasso spent over $3 million on his campaign, six times more than Trauner's $500,000. Barrasso raised $5.5 million to Trauner's $800,000.

Legislation recently introduced by Barrasso includes a bill to end federal tax credits for electric vehicles.
