Eight of the 10 Republicans seeking Wyoming's lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives attended a meet-and-greet at the Historic Sheridan Inn Tuesday night.

The event was hosted by the Sheridan County Republican Women, and Anita Schambler, president of the organization, said it was open to anyone who wanted to attend.

Each of the candidates was given about five minutes to speak to those attending the event. The candidates attending were Darin Smith of Rock Springs, State Sen. Leland Christensen of Alta, Liz Cheney of Cheyenne, Jason Senteney of Yoder, Paul Paad of Casper, Mike Konsmo of Powell, Rex Rammell of Gillette, and State Rep. Tim Stubson of Casper.

Several of the candidates talked about the need for Congress to take back power, in particular from the federal agencies whose leaders are not elected by the people. They also talked about the need to secure U.S. borders in the south, and the need to protect Wyoming's energy industry. Cynthia Lummis, who is Wyoming's current Congresswoman, is retiring this year.
