An Independent challenger launched his candidacy Thursday to take on Republican Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso in November's midterms.

Wyoming entrepreneur David Dodson, who describes himself as a Reagan Republican, is running on a platform to put The Equality State first.

"Economically, we're ranked dead last out of all 50 states, and yet we have abundant natural resources, no income tax, low cost of living, and phenomenal outdoor recreation," Dodson said. "Yet, when you read John Barrasso's website, he seems to think last place is OK because he writes about how well things are going. That's not just unacceptable, it's crazy.

"Given the potential of our state, we need to start putting Wyoming first," Dodson said. "Wyoming ahead of donors, ahead of party, ahead of personal political careers. John Barrasso is more focused on appearing on cable news than he is on growing our state's economy, and we deserve a working senator, not a celebrity senator.

"Wyoming first. Not Mitch McConnell first," Dodson said. "I won't go there to be liked. I'll go there to get things done for Wyoming families. Period."

Dodson said earlier in the week his wife had given him permission to put $1 million into his campaign.

"If she's not looking, I'd be willing to put in more," Dodson said, Politico quoted.
