Race of the Day

19 Days Until Election Day

Status: Republican Incumbent
2004 Presidential Result: Red State (West)

Status: Safe Republican

Wyoming is one of two states seeing both Senate seats up for election this year. Neither one of the Cowboy State's races for Senate are getting too much attention, but especially not the regularly scheduled one for a six-year term.

While there had been some speculation as to if he would seek reelection or not, popular Republican Senator Mike Enzi announced that he would indeed seek a third term. He is opposed by a Democrat college professor named Chris Rothfuss, who is in his 30s and virtually unknown. Enzi's incumbency and the fact that Wyoming is still one of the most Republican states in the country will help him cruise to reelection.
