Jackson, Wy – Wyoming democrats are off to Boston to take part in the National Democratic Party Convention. State Party Chairman Mike Gireau says it gives his delegates a chance to meet people they normally only see on television. Since democrats can be lacking in the Cowboy state, he says it also helps rev up party members. Gireau says this is especially important since so many are running for office in Wyoming. He is hoping they will return to the state with new vigor to get more democrats elected.
Gireau says during the year they work to keep the national platform moderate, but this week will be mostly for show.
