November 5, 2020
CHEYENNE – In a history-making moment for the Equality State, former Republican Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis was declared the winner of the race to become the state's next U.S. senator, making her the first woman from Wyoming to be elected to the Senate.
Meanwhile, the state's current Republican congresswoman, Liz Cheney, was reelected by a wide margin to serve a third term as the state's only delegate in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Lummis, who was the state's sole delegate in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2009 to 2017, was declared the winner of the race shortly after polls closed statewide at 7 Tuesday night. She defeated Democratic challenger Merav Ben-David by a wide margin.
