GOP Candidates Try To Get Noticed
Casper, Wy – Some 30 candidates are spending some final hours trying to get themselves noticed by 71 Republicans from across the state. Those Republicans will narrow the 30 names to three possible candidates to become next U-S Senator from Wyoming. The State Republican Central committee will hear from many of the candidates throughout the day and many agree that making the list will be a challenge. Doug Chamberlain is a former Wyoming Speaker of the House. He's tried to be low key about his intentions. Former State Ag Director Ron Micheli has met with as many central committee members as possible but he admits that getting to the round of three is not easy. The central committee will pair the list from 30 to ten and then to five. Eventually three names will be sent to Governor Dave Freudenthal who will make the final selection.
