Cheyenne, Wyoming – Former presidential candidate and current U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) endorsed Cynthia Lummis today in the race for U.S. Senate in Wyoming.
“Cynthia Lummis is a strong leader,” said Senator Cruz. “As a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus she fought to reduce wasteful Washington spending, adhere to the Constitution and defend the conservative values we hold dear. She made Wyoming proud in the House of Representatives and she will do the same in the Senate. I am proud to endorse her for the United States Senate.”
“There’s a reason the people of Wyoming have long admired Senator Ted Cruz – he’s the very embodiment of a Constitutional Conservative,” said Lummis. “As a United States Senator, he’s fought to limit Washington overreach, defend individual freedoms and secure our borders. He’s been a tireless champion of President Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda and I am beyond honored to have his endorsement.”
Lummis, who served for eight years as Wyoming’s sole representative in Congress from 2008-2016, is running to fill the seat being left vacant by Senator Mike Enzi. Prior to serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, Lummis spent eight years as Wyoming State Treasurer and 14 years as a member of the Wyoming State House and Senate.
Lummis has also been endorsed by U.S. Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Bill Cassidy, former U.S. Representatives Jason Chaffetz and Michele Bachmann as well as the Club for Growth, Senate Conservative Fund, FreedomWorks for America and the Protect Freedom PAC.

About Cynthia Lummis
A fourth generation Wyoming native, Cynthia Lummis currently helps operate her family’s cattle ranches in Laramie County. From 2008 to 2016, she served as Wyoming’s lone Congressman in Washington, D.C. where she cofounded the Freedom Caucus, championed Wyoming’s mineral and energy resources and fought to rein in spending and reduce the federal deficit.
In Congress, Cynthia earned her reputation as a no-nonsense conservative and principled policymaker, garnering an ‘A+’ rating from the National Rifle Association and a 100% voting record with Right to Life. Her pro-Wyoming voting record earned her recognition as the legislator who opposed President Obama’s radical agenda more often than any other federal elected official.
Cynthia’s deep knowledge of public lands, energy and natural resource issues led her to interview with President Trump for a position in his cabinet as Secretary of the Interior in 2017 and 2019. She also served as a member of the Trump/Pence Transition Team.
Cynthia is a three-time graduate of the University of Wyoming. She and her late-husband, Al Wiederspahn, have one daughter and a grandson.
