Independent From Cheyenne Enters Race For Congress

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) ā€” A 72-year-old former Roman Catholic priest has announced he will run as an independent for Wyoming’s lone seat in the U.S. House.

Charlie Hardy said Monday he will run for Congress using only his $401-a-month Social Security check to fund his campaign. He says he doesn’t want people donating money to his campaign.

Hardy will have to collect 3,740 signatures in order to get on the November ballot.

The Associcated Press reports that Hardy served as a Catholic seminarian and priest for 25 years in Wyoming. He also lived in Venezuela for eight years as a missionary.

The seat is now held by Republican Rep. Cynthia Lummis.

Casper College political science professor Chris Henrichsen previously announced he will seek the Democratic nomination.
