(Wyo.)-Retired Air Force Offficer Takes On Enzi In Primary
By MEAD GRUVER
CHEYENNE, Wyoming (AP) - Sen. Mike Enzi's challengers in next week's Republican primary include a retired U.S. Air Force officer from Sheridan who downplays the significance of Enzi's seniority on Senate committees.
Enzi says he's seeking a fourth term partly because that seniority serves Wyoming's interests. He wants to cut federal spending and simplify the tax code.
Retired Lt. Col. Bryan Miller of Sheridan is a former presidential advance agent for Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Miller says that if elected, he would eliminate federal bureaucracy that duplicates functions better done by state agencies.
The winner likely will face Democrat and former priest Charlie Hardy in the general election. Six other Republicans and Democrats have campaigned little if at all since filing for the Senate primaries.
