DescriptionThe Wyoming Democratic Party is calling for one of its Senate candidates to drop out after he made a number of disparaging remarks about nearly every one of his opponents on social media last week.

In a series of tweets last week, self-described progressive James Kirk DeBrine — a political newcomer from Natrona County — used an opponent’s medical history to cast doubt on their fitness for office, questioned the faith of a Jewish opponent and appeared to suggest that a candidate with multiple children would not be able to competently hold elected office.

He also described several Democratic candidates as “jokes” and, in later tweets, appeared to throw jabs at fellow U.S. Senate candidate Nathan Wendt, whose family manages a renewable energy think tank in Jackson, calling him a corporate, fake progressive.
