Barrasso: GOP Platform Represents Wyoming Values

Jul 21, 2016

Wyoming U.S Senator John Barrasso said he’s pleased with the final Republican Party platform that was adopted in Cleveland this week. 

Barrasso chaired the committee that drafted the platform. The document has been criticized for its stance against same sex marriage, its opposition to transgender men and women using the restroom that aligns with their gender identity, and its support for a constitutional amendment banning abortion, among other things. But Barrasso said the platform represents Wyoming values.

"Well it is a conservative platform, it's a Republican platform, I think Donald Trump said it was a Trump platform and I'm delighted because these are the visions and the views that I hear home at Wyoming every weekend."

Barrasso added that the platform was developed with input from 112 people from across the country.
