Wyoming US Sen. Mike Enzi won’t seek re-election in 2020

GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi announced Saturday that he will not run for a fifth term in 2020.

The 75-year-old made the announcement in his hometown of Gillette.

With Enzi’s retirement, Wyoming will have its first open Senate seat in more than a decade.
