CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Constitution Party candidate opposing congresswoman Cynthia Lummis says he would try to eliminate several federal agencies and bring U.S. troops home if elected.

The party recently picked a Casper physician, 65-year-old Daniel Cummings, as their candidate for Wyoming's only congressional seat.

Cummings has never run for office before. He said that some federal agencies, such as the education and energy departments, are illegitimate because Congress didn't have the constitutional authority to establish them.

He also supports pulling out American troops from all military actions and bases around the world and withdrawing from the United Nations.

Lummis is also being challenged by a Democrat, Casper College political science instructor Chris Henrichsen and independent Charlie Hardy, a former Catholic priest.
