WY-Sen: Barrasso Gets The Seat

Republican State Senator John Barrasso will serve the remainder of the unexpired term of the late Craig Thomas in the US Senate.

Barrasso, a conservative Republican, was appointed by Democratic Governor Dave Freudenthal. He was one of three names submitted to the governor by the Wyoming Republican Party.

Barrasso will have to run in a special election next November to serve out the remainder of Thomas' term, which ends in 2013.
