Josh Wheeler says he's running for the office of Wyoming's U.S. senator because he's a disabled veteran who's tired of the status quo.

The Casper man is running on the Republican ticket. In fact, he said, although the pledge asks that candidates support 80 percent of Wyoming Republican values, he has pledged to support 100 percent of those values.

He said he's also signed a pledge that he will not vote to raise any taxes.

Wheeler said another big call for him to step forward and run is seeing how his fellow veterans are treated within the VA system. Wheeler said he is 100 percent disabled, and while he was trying to get services for himself within the VA system, he noticed that his fellow veterans were also struggling.

He said he's tired of seeing career politicians make promises that they don't fulfill when they get into office, and charges that elected officials seem more interested in their next campaign than in helping their constituents.

Wheeler said he's owned and operated businesses in Wyoming, worked on the Miracle Mile Ranch and served in the military in Iraq.

Wheeler has a website, Fighting4Wyoming.com, and he can be followed on Facebook at joshwheelerforussenate.
