It has been ten days past a month since Governor Dave announced he will not seek another term. Things aren't looking too good for the Wyoming Democratic Party, due to the lack of time to ramp up a proper campaign. The filing period for the gubernatorial election takes place over a two-week period from May 13-28, 2010. With no one formally announcing a run yet, I fear we are most certainly going to have someone with a big red R behind their name running this state for the next four years.
In light of this, it seems prudent to look at the Republican Party members who have announced a run for the office. Former Republican state Representative Ron Micheli, Republican State Auditor Rita Meyer, Republican state House Speaker Colin Simpson, and former U.S. Attorney Matt Mead all have announced their candidacies for governor. Check out their websites. I can't say I agree with many of their stances, especially concerning social issues. Oh, and prepare to have the phrase "Obamacare" repeated ad nauseam. Ugh. It's gonna be quite the ride.
