Wyoming congressional candidate Rex Rammell has announced he is dropping out of the race for the state’s lone seat in the House of Representatives.

He will be holding a press conference in Casper on Thursday to announce who he is endorsing in the race.

Rammell, a veterinarian,  ran unsuccessfully in the 2008 Idaho senatorial election against Incumbent Republican U.S. Senator Jim Risch, polling 5.4% of the vote.

In 2009 announced that he would seek the Republican nomination for Governor in the 2010 Idaho gubernatorial election.

He lost to Incumbent Governor Butch Otter, with 26% of the vote to Otter's 54.6%.

In 2012, Rammell ran in the Republican primary for District 7 in the Idaho House of Representatives, but came in second place out of 3 candidates.
