who is John Barrasso's wife

Since 2008, John Barrasso has served as a U.S. Senator from Wyoming, initially replacing Craig L. Thomas after his passing. He won a special election in 2008 to remain in his seat, and won re-election in 2012. As of 2018, he is the Senate Republican Conference chairman.

But before a career in politics, he was an orthopedic surgeon for 24 years, serving as State President of the Wyoming Medical Society, President of the National Association of Physician Broadcasters, and a member of the American Medical Association Council of Ethics and Judicial Affairs.

Barrasso himself has made his views clear. In 2007, when he was temporarily appointed to the Senate, he said, “I believe in limited government, lower taxes, less spending, traditional family values, local control and a strong national defense,” and had”voted for prayer in schools, against gay marriage and [had] sponsored legislation to protect the sanctity of life.”

He’s also a vehement denier of climate change and even introduced a bill that would have prevented the EPA from limiting carbon dioxide emissions. Barrasso is also a staunch Trump supporter, and even defended him after it was revealed Trump had business dealings with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
