A self-described libertarian-leaning Republican, Sen. Cynthia Lummis has been a Wyoming state representative, state senator, state treasurer and U.S. congresswoman. She retired back to her family ranch after her husband died in 2015 and came back to Congress because neither party cared enough about the deficit for her liking.

“I’m really worried about it. I think we’re devaluing the U.S. dollar,” she told me sitting on the lip of the Capitol reflecting pool that was covered in bird poop, which after decades on a ranch didn’t bother her. (It bothered me a bit, but “fake it til you make it,” right?)
