Attempted Noriega Assassin Plans Barrasso Challenge

October 18, 2011

After winning a Silver Star in Vietnam, fighting communism in Africa and working as a mercenary, how tough can a Senate race be?

Sixty-Five-year-old Thomas Bleming is about to find out. Hotline alum Jeremy Pelzer at the Casper Star Tribune has the details on the man who plans to primary Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo. The paper reports that Bleming once worked as mercenary-for-hire and landed in jail in 1979 for nearly two years after a botched assassination attempt against Panamanian Dictator Manuel Noriega.

Don't expect a traditional Republican candidacy: Bleming told the paper he plans to campaign around the state with an AK-47 on his back as a symbol of his support for gun rights -- but he is also for government-run universal health care system for all Americans and abolishment of the Fed.
