CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Charlie Hardy has won the Wyoming Democratic primary election for U.S. Senate, defeating three challengers.

Hardy is a 75-year-old former priest who says he lived in a cardboard shack when he ministered in Venezuela in the 1980s and 1990s.

Hardy beat Al Hamburg of Torrington, Rex Wilde of Cheyenne and William Bryk of Brooklyn, New York, in Tuesday’s primary.

He has never held office. In 2012, he failed to collect enough voter signatures to run as an independent against Republican U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis.
