House District 61 Republican Rep. Daniel Singh says he is running for re-election.

Singh was first elected in 2022 and will be going for his second term in the State House.

He serves on the Travel, Recreation, Wildlife, and Cultural Resources Committee and the Select Committee on Blockchain, Financial Technology, and Digital Innovation Technology.

In his campaign announcement, Singh says “I am honored to represent the people of House District 61 in Cheyenne,” said Singh. “Our community deserves a voice that passionately fights for liberty and justice. I am running for re-election to continue the work we’ve started and to ensure our values are protected in the Legislature.''

He is the son of an immigrant and comes from a family of missionaries. He says historical influences include people such as Teddy Roosevelt, King Solomon, Seneca, and Ron Paul.

Rep. Singh Lists Priorities If Reelected

In his campaign announcement, Singh sets the following legislative priorities if he is reelected:

Economic Freedom: Supporting policies that stimulate job creation, reduce taxes, and eliminate unnecessary regulations. Fighting the Federal Reserve when they get in the way.

Personal Liberties: Defending individuals’ rights to make their own choices and live free from government interference.

Efficiency and Accountability: Promoting open, effective government and ensuring elected officials are accountable to the people and are outstanding in their conduct.

As of early Friday afternoon, one other candidate had filed for the Republican Primary election in House District 61, Matt Malcolm of Cheyenne. Friday is the last day for candidates to fill for the August 20 Primary Election.

Whoever wins that election will advance to the November 5 General Election. So far no Democrats have filed to run for the seat, although that could change by the end of today.
