Wyoming Congressman Cynthia Lummis will be the western states co-chair for Senator Rand Paul’s run for President. Lummis, a fiscal conservative, says that she’s been impressed with the Kentucky Senator’s efforts to stop federal spending.
“The direction we are heading is not sustainable and Rand Paul is the one person that I’m sure will do what he says he’s going to do. We will quit kicking the can down the road and address some of these issues that are going to unleash the American economy.”
Lummis says there is little political will to do anything about the deficit, but she thinks Paul could change that.
“We need to just solve some of these things that we know how to solve, but that are politically difficult. We’ve seen even in Greece recently how difficult it is for people to face the systemic problems they have in their economies. American needs to do it and Rand Paul will help us do it.”
Lummis and her co-chair Idaho Representative Raul Labrador will make appearances on Paul’s behalf throughout the west. Lummis says Paul expects to tour the west in August.
