Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso will officially launch his reelection campaign Wednesday in a video obtained exclusively by the Daily Caller.

Barrasso currently serves as the Senate Republican Conference chair, and is running for Senate GOP Whip. He has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump and has been serving in the Senate since 2007.

“Wyoming has a rich history, and a bright future with more and better jobs, an energy economy that powers America, and an education system that prepares our next generation to compete and lead. And men and women in uniform who keep us safe. I’m more excited about Wyoming’s future than I have ever been,” Barrasso says in the video.

“John Barrasso is a fantastic Senator for the incredible people of Wyoming. He is running to be the next Republican Whip for the Senate Republican Conference, a very important job, to ensure we pass and enact Strong Legislation that puts America First. I know John very well — he will never let you down. John Barrasso has my Complete and Total Endorsement!,” Trump said in a statement endorsing Barrasso in March.

The senator will release the video later Wednesday morning, the Caller is told.

Barrasso has served in the Senate since June 2007 and was elected chairman of the conference in 2018. He previously passed on running for the top leadership position after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced his retirement in February.

“I have had time to reflect on how I might best serve the Republican Conference and our country,” Barrasso wrote in a press release early March. “After a lot of thought, I will ask my colleagues for their support and help to work for them as the Assistant Republican Leader.”
