CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Another Democrat is getting into Wyoming’s U.S. Senate race.

The Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1asBlwL ) reports that Rex Wilde of Cheyenne announced his candidacy Wednesday, vowing to fight for veterans and the middle class. The 57-year-old works for the contractor Knife River and served in the Wyoming Army National Guard and in the Army, including the 82nd Airborne.

The announcement came a day after Democrat Charlie Hardy, a former Catholic priest, said he wanted to be the Democratic challenger to Republican Sen. Mike Enzi.

Enzi has an estimated $1.8 million war chest after Liz Cheney abandoned her bid.

A Wyoming Democrat hasn’t held a congressional seat in more than 30 years.
