Gordon, Lummis to fundraise for South Dakota’s Noem

The fundraiser, coordinated by Michigan-based Republican consultants the Templar Baker Group, features former candidates for the Wyoming statehouse, agriculture leaders and other high-profile political figures. It comes as Noem has been floated as a potential candidate for the Republican Party’s 2024 nomination for president.

A representative for Gordon said Noem’s campaign approached him initially, asking Gordon whether he would co-sponsor the reception, and he accepted. Gordon did not request help from Noem for his upcoming re-election campaign, according to his campaign representative Gail Geringer, though he would “certainly welcome it when the time comes,” she wrote in a statement.
