Republican Cynthia Lummis wins Wyoming Senate election
Republican candidate Cynthia Lummis is projected to win her Wyoming Senate bid against her Democratic opponent Merav Ben-David.
The Associated Press called the race at 9:01 p.m. ET.
The two were running to fill the seat of Sen. Mike Enzi (R). Lummis’s victory comes after she won a competitive primary battle earlier this year against nine other Republicans.
Lummis, a former member of Congress was favored to win the election in a traditionally red state. She also went into Tuesday with a massive campaign bank account compared to her opponent, raising six times more than Ben-David.
Lummis represented Wyoming’s at-large congressional district from 2009 to 2017.
