Since the U.S.-led assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani on Friday, two of Wyoming’s members of Congress have offered their stance.

Casper Star-Tribune state politics reporter Nick Reynolds is covering how Wyoming’s Congress members are reacting amid rising tensions between Iran and the U.S. He explained what he has learned so far, though the situation continues to evolve.

Reynolds also discussed another prominent issue involving Wyoming Congress members. Recently Rep. Liz Cheney and Sens. John Barrasso and Mike Enzi joined more than 200 members of Congress in showing their support to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court ruling that protects the right to have an abortion.

Listen above for more, including some of the strangest political stories of the last decade, and a new effort Reynolds is spearheading that asks the public to shape his upcoming coverage of the Wyoming legislative session.
