CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Sen. John Barrasso easily defeated two opponents in Tuesday’s Wyoming Republican primary and will face Democrat Tim Chesnut in the November election.

Barrasso beat Thomas Bleming of Lusk, a self-described soldier of fortune, and Emmett Mavy of Alpine, a management consultant who previously ran unsuccessfully as a Democrat.

Barrasso is seeking his first full six-year term in the Senate and will face Chesnut, an Albany County commissioner from Laramie, in November.

Democratic Gov. Dave Freudenthal appointed Barrasso in 2007 after the death of Sen. Craig Thomas. Barrasso won election in 2008 to serve the remainder of Thomas’ term.

Barrasso has risen to become chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, ranking him fourth among the Senate Republican leadership.
