Henrichsen slams Democrats for neglecting state races
CASPER — The Democrat running for Wyoming’s congressional seat says fellow Democrats are neglecting the party’s homegrown candidates even as they raise money for out-of-state races.
Chris Henrichsen aired his dissatisfaction with the state party on Twitter on Tuesday night after a fundraiser in Jackson for candidates including Sen. Jon Tester of Montana, former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine and Rep. Martin Heinrich of New Mexico. He called for new leadership next year.
Mr. Henrichsen told the Casper Star-Tribune that he and Colorado congressional candidate Sal Pace were introduced at the event by treasurer Leslie Petersen and that she said they were hoping to get some “crumbs.”
Ms. Petersen confirmed that but said she said it jokingly.
Mr. Henrichsen, who’s challenging Rep. Cynthia M. Lummis, said he did get one donation for $500 at the event.
The Democratic vice president and Republican Wisconsin congressman have been crisscrossing the country this week to help their No. 1s.
Mr. Biden is seen as more effective than President Obama at courting white working-class voters. Mr. Ryan is a favorite of the Republican Party’s conservative base, a group that long has been skeptical of Romney.
