Former GOP Senator Mike Enzi Passes Away

Former Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi died on Monday at the age of 77 after being hospitalized for injuries sustained in a bike accident.

Enzi, who opted to retire rather than seek reelection in 2020, “passed away peacefully … surrounded by his family,” according to a message from his Twitter account.

“His family expresses their deep appreciation for all of the prayers, support and concern,” a follow-up added. “They now ask for privacy and continued prayers during this difficult time. The family is planning to hold a celebration of a life well-lived, with details to be shared later.”

Earlier on Monday, his Twitter account shared a statement that he had been “life flighted” to UCHealth Medical Center of the Rockies in Colorado after he “sustained serious injuries while riding a bicycle near his home.” They said he was taken to the hospital on Friday evening.
