Wyoming's Congressional Representative, Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo., hasn't made an endorsement in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, but last week she did make a prediction.
Speaking with KGWN TV in Cheyenne, Lummis named former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney the favorite.
"I do believe that eventually we're going to see Mitt Romney emerge as the Republican nominnee," she told interviewer Rylee DeGood.
Lummis said it's "been wonderful to watch these candidates grow on the campaign trail and hone each others' (economic) plans" and that the "great" Republican debates have better prepared the eventual party nominee (which, according to her prediction, will be Romney).
Another Wyoming political powerhouse, former U.S. Sen. Al Sipmson declined to pick a winner while speaking to the Cheyenene station on Thursday.
"I have irritated so many people in the world that at this point, if I were to pick one, I would again rain boulders on my bald dome and I'm not going to do that," Simpson said during a joint interview about his recently-published biography.
"However," Simpson said, "there are some real nutcases in the race, I just would throw that in. You pick them out."
While not naming any nutcases, Simpson did laugh off the chances of one would-be presidential contender -- himself.
The Cody Republican said an effort to draft him into the 2012 Presidential race (www.alsimpson2012.com) "gives me goosepimples all over."
"Those guys got together over 18 beers and put together this YouTube thing [Note: PG13 language] ... I nearly died laughing when I saw it because they had quoted one of my great phrases which I don't use here," Simpson said.
The "great phrase" Simpson is apparently referring to is, well, we won't use it here, either.
