    First elected to the U.S. House in 2008, Cynthia quickly earned her reputation as a no-nonsense conservative and principled policymaker. She committed to the ‘No New Tax Pledge’ and garnered 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 liberal agenda more often than any other federal elected official.

    Cynthia was a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, a group consisting of the most unflinching conservative Members of the House of Representatives. She fought throughout her tenure in Congress to rein in spending and reduce the federal deficit, working with the bipartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and ultimately co-sponsoring several bipartisan budget proposals.

    Former Wyoming Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis is running for Senate. Her successor in the House of Representatives, Liz Cheney, is also considering a run for the Senate. I like Cheney. She’s been a strong voice for Republicanism in the House and has served Wyoming well. But her allegiance is to Republicanism, not conservatism. She is a moderate at best, landing on Conservative Review’s list of the Top 25 RINOs on Capitol Hill.

    Lummis, by contrast, was a member of the House Freedom Caucus. She fought alongside over conservatives and Liberty-minded Republicans for eight years before feeling her time to move along had come. But her break was short-lived. The call to continue bringing the fight to Democrats and moderate Republicans was too strong. Now, she’s back in for the American people.

    She is saying all the right things.

    --
    A former member of the fiscally conservative Freedom Caucus in the House, Lummis said another big motivation is to try to reduce the federal deficit.

    “I was a fiscal hawk. I will be a fiscal hawk, in an environment where fiscal hawks are getting fewer and fewer, quite frankly,” Lummis said.

    She said she would also advocate for more state and local involvement in decisions affecting public lands in the West and promote energy development on those lands.
    ---

    We need her in the Senate. She would be right up there with Rand and Mike Lee and possibly Cruz

    Imagine if Rand, Lee, Cruz and Lummis stuck together on key votes. They could sway the majority if its 53-47. That gives them a lot of power.

    Cheney is not running for Senate. She most likely has her eye set on eventually becoming Speaker of the House.

    Cheney is going to be a real problem for us in the future if she is Speaker. However, nothing new there with Boehner, Ryan and McCarthy. It's business as usual.

    If we take over the Senate though Brian and have 10 Rand Paul's we can stop her!

    The Senate is the key.

    Lummis did get a powerful ally after Cheney’s announcement: the conservative Club for Growth endorsed her Senate campaign, with the group's president, former Rep. David McIntosh (R-Ind.) promising to spend "millions to support her candidacy"
    Good news

    Jordan must be the next Speaker.

    2016 Presidential hopeful and current Republican U.S. Senator from Texas Ted Cruz endorsed Cynthia Lummis in Wyoming’s Senate Race. In a statement, Cruz mentioned that Lummis is a strong leader and that she fought to reduce wasteful Washington spending while serving in the House of Representatives. Lummis shared that she was beyond honored to have the endorsement of Cruz who she views as the embodiment of a constitutional conservative.

    Lummis served for 8 years as Wyoming lone representative in the house before choosing not to run for reelection in 2016. The seat she is seeking is currently held by longtime Senator Mike Enzi. Lummis has also been endorsed for the spot 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.
    Teocon backing....

    She is certainly doing well with endorsements. I think she will be in top 3 of Senators from a liberty perspective.

    Lummis has done an interview...


    https://youtu.be/SaqJPp5dA7Y

    She says she is running for office again because she is concerned about debt and deficits that nobody is addressing. She said that the spending is debasing the currency of hard working Americans (Ha! She sounds just like Ron Paul or Mises).

    Some of her policy proposals that she mentioned:

    Deport foreign criminals.

    Term limits.

    2 year budgets.

    Block granting funding to states.

    @Brian4Liberty - thought this might be useful. Lummis would instantly become one of the better Senators simply because of her concern for the debt and deficit. I assume she would follow through in the Senate and vote against giant spending bills unless the MIC get to her first!

  22. #19
    Two of Wyoming's senators have endorsed Lummis



    Looks like she is headed to the Senate. I think she will prove a real asset. @Brian4Liberty

    Liking what I'm seeing

    LUMMIS:
    “Democratic socialism” is a fraud. A convenient phrase used by radical liberals to dupe people into foregoing freedom for the promise of government benevolence.
