WYOMING – US Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) appears to have been spending some quality time with POTUS lately. Barrasso posted news of a luncheon and dinner with President Trump where Nort Korea and Iran were on the discussion menu.
Barrasso has been vocal about his support for the President’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and has applauded peace efforts with North Korea.
Most recently, Barrasso told Fox & Friends he anticipates big gains by Republicans this November if Trump keeps heralding the thriving economy.
“People are looking at the economy,” Barrasso said on the TV show. “Sixty-six percent of Americans, according to one new poll, said the economy is doing very well. People see it in their paycheck. They see it in their home communities. I saw it Wyoming this past weekend.”
Barrasso’s chumminess seems to have paid off. Several news outlets are now reporting Trump has offered to come to Wyoming to campaign for Barrasso’s re-election bid. Barrasso says the Commander-in-Chief mentioned his appreciation for Wyoming because it was the only state where Trump polled over 70 percent of the vote in the 2016 election.
Barrasso is facing Democratic challenger Gary Trauner of Wilson, Wyoming, and Independent candidate Dave Dodson in the November general election.
