Casper Man Launches Longshot Attempt To Unseat Barrasso For U.S. Senate

Casper Republican Reid Rasner said he turned down two requests from political groups to run for office before he started seriously considering taking on Wyoming’s senior congressional delegation member U.S. Sen. John Barrasso in the 2024 election.

By the time the third request came around, he said the idea started marinating in his head.

“I saw the support I was receiving in the counties around the state and started considering it,” he said.
