  • Rex Rammell now says he wants to represent Wyoming in the U.S. House.

Rex Rammell continues to check off his political campaign bucket list, this time by running for office in Wyoming.

The man who previously joked about seeking a license to hunt President Barack Obama and was convicted in 2011 for poaching an elk in Bonneville County, ran unsuccessful campaigns in 2008 to represent Idaho in the U.S. Senate, in 2010 for Idaho governor and in 2012 for the Idaho House of Representatives.

In 2012, however, Rammell said he was "giving up Idaho" and moving to Wyoming, adding, "If I do anything with politics, it won't be in Idaho."

True to his word, Rammell has launched a race to represent Wyoming in the U.S. House, according to the Wyoming Tribune Eagle. Rammell is running for the seat held by Rep. Cynthia Lummis, who is not seeking a fifth term.

"That got me rejuvenated," Rammell told the Tribune Eagle. "I felt like I could finish what I started a few years ago."

Rammell is joining what is expected to be a crowded slate of GOP candidates for the House seat. Five other Wyoming residents have already declared their candidacies and two more say they'll probably join the race.
