University of Wyoming professor Christopher Rothfuss announced at his parents' house in Casper Saturday that he will run for U.S. Senator Mike Enzi's seat in the upcoming Congressional race.
A Democrat, Rothfuss is running on a platform of change in Washington.
"We need a fresh group of policy makers that are willing to put the needs of their country, and the needs of their states, ahead of their personal rivalries and the desires of their political party -- individuals who seek solutions through bipartisan collaboration and support, rather than through the simple tyrrany of the majority party," Rothfuss said during his candidacy announcement.
