With Lynne Cheney out, who will the GOP pick to be the next Senator from Wyoming?
Here's what the short list looks like:
• three sitting legislators (John Barrasso of Casper, Cale Case of Lander and Colin Simpson of Cody),
• two former Wyoming House speakers (Randall Luthi of Freedom and Doug Chamberlain of LaGrange),
• the party's 2006 nominee for governor (Ray Hunkins),
• a former state treasurer (Cynthia Lummis),
• a former U.S. Attorney for Wyoming (Matt Mead),
• a former state Agriculture Department director (Ron Micheli)
• and a former party chairman (Tom Sansonetti).
