U.S. Senator John Barrasso issued the following statement after winning the Wyoming Republican primary election:
"First and foremost, I want to thank the people of Wyoming for their support. It is a privilege to represent Wyoming in the United States Senate.
"Elections aren't reward systems; they're job applications. That is why I continue to travel around the state, listening to people, and asking them to let me continue fighting for a more efficient, effective and accountable government.
"I look forward to a spirited campaign in the general election about the need for a new direction for our country. Bad decisions in Washington will impact the health of our state -- our freedoms, our land, and our jobs. Our future is simply too important to be left unprotected."
