Enzi, Hardy To Face Off In General Election
After winning Tuesday's primary, incumbent Republican US Senator Mike Enzi will face off against Democrat Charlie Hardy in the November general election.
The Republican race was once expected to be tight, with Enzi facing a challenge from Liz Cheney, but Enzi won in a landslide after Cheney dropped out earlier this year. His four lesser-known challengers collectively took less than 20 percent of the vote. Going into the general election, Enzi says he won't be campaigning against Democrat Charlie Hardy, but instead promoting his record.
“I quote my dad, who said if you want to know what somebody will do, look at what they’ve done,” he said.
Enzi is seeking his fourth term.
Meanwhile, Hardy says he’s also not campaigning against his competitor.
"I really don't think I'm just running against Senator Enzi. We’re running against a whole system that needs to be changed," Hardy said. "The whole system where the more money you have, the more likely you are to be elected.”
According to the latest campaign filings, Hardy has raised a total of $53,000 to Enzi’s $3.5 million.
