Republican candidate Cynthia Lummis has been running to fill the seat of Senator Mike Enzi (R). Lummis, who served as a Wyoming conservative Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives for eight years, will become the first woman to represent Wyoming in the U.S. Senate. With the endorsement of President Donald Trump, she has been running against her Democratic opponent Merav Ben-David.
While election results are still being finalized, the Associated Press called Tuesday’s election in her favor within three minutes of polls closing in Wyoming.
Long is the CEO of Avanti Bank & Trust which received a banking charter last week in Wyoming. The bank was “formed to serve as a compliant bridge between digital assets and the U.S. dollar payments,” its website details. “Senator Lummis,” Long opined. “She is likely to be one of the most powerful US senators, given how divided the new senate appears to be. She loves what Wyoming did in crypto — publicly said tonight that she wants to defend it against federal encroachment.”
