CHEYENNE, WY — Defeating three challengers, Charlie Hardy has won the Wyoming Democratic primary election for U.S. Senate.
A former priest, 75-year-old Hardy ministered in Venezuela through the 1980's and 90's. During which time, he lived in a cardboard shack.
Hardy beat Al Hamburg of Torrington, Rex Wilde of Cheyenne and William Bryk of Brooklyn, New York, in Tuesday's primary.
Hardy has never held office. In 2012, he failed to collect enough voter signatures to run as an independent against Republican U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis.
