Former Wyoming Rep. Cynthia Lummis considering 2020 Senate bid to replace Enzi

Former Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis is seriously weighing a bid to replace outgoing Sen. Mike Enzi in the 2020 elections, several sources told the Star-Tribune this week.

Lummis, who left office in 2016, has been considered a reluctant option to fill Enzi’s position. Despite her legislative pedigree and proven success in Wyoming, Lummis still has several active business interests in the state, as well as young grandchildren and a ranch to look after.

However, since Enzi announced his retirement last week, the four-term congresswoman has received “numerous” calls from former colleagues in Washington urging her to run, her former Chief of Staff Tucker Fagan told the Star-Tribune on Thursday, which Lummis appears to be taking seriously.

“She’s had a lot of stuff on her plate, and she’s working through those. And she’s not done yet,” said Fagan. “But I know she is getting calls from people in Congress saying ‘hey, if Enzi’s going out, you should take it seriously.’ And she’s doing that. She’s mulling her business, family, lifestyle and the possibility of a run.”
