Bryan Miller Wins GOP Straw Poll for US Senator
In a straw poll taken over the weekend at the Wyoming Republican Party State Convention, elected delegates to the Convention chose Sheridan’s Bryan Miller as the favored candidate for United States Senate. The Wyoming Republican Party met Thursday through Saturday last week for their State Convention during which time they conducted the business of the party.
Former United States Representative Cynthia Lummis placed second and Robert Short third.
All ten of the Senate hopefuls were given time to speak and make the case for their election. Each of the candidates spoke in person with the exception of Cynthia Lummis who shared a pre-recorded video.
Miller has long been associated with the party, most recently serving as the Sheridan County Chairman prior to taking a hiatus in order to run his Senate campaign.
Other candidates who spoke during Saturday’s Convention include R. Mark Armstrong, John Holtz, Donna Rice, Robert Short and Joshua Wheeler.
The contested race is for the seat left open by Senator Mike Enzi. The Republican candidate will be selected in the August 18th Primary and will then advance to the General Election.
