Biography

Michael Bradley “Mike” Enzi (/ˈɛnzi/; born February 1, 1944) is an American politician and member of the Republican Party who serves as the senior United States Senator from Wyoming.
Raised in Thermopolis, Wyoming, Enzi attended George Washington University and the University of Denver. He expanded his father’s shoe store business in Gillette before being elected mayor of Gillette in 1974. In the late 1970s he worked in the United States Department of the Interior. He served as a state legislator in the Wyoming House of Representatives from 1987 to 1991 and the Wyoming Senate from 1991 to 1997. During the 1980s and 1990s he worked as an accountant and executive director in the energy industry.
Enzi won a tight primary for election to the U.S. Senate in 1996 and was re-elected by large margins in 2002 and 2008. Since his election, he has consistently been ranked as one of the most conservative members of the Senate. He is the ranking Republican on the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, which he chaired from 2005 to 2007. He was a member of the 2009 Gang of Six which attempted to negotiate health care reform.
On July 16, 2013, Enzi disclosed that he will seek a fourth term as senator; immediately Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, announced that she will run in the primary election in a bid to block Enzi’s re-nomination.
