Wyoming Voters Head to Polls Tuesday

Cheyenne, WY – Voters across Wyoming head to the polls Tuesday to decide a number of local and state races. The most interest is whether voters will decide to allow Wyoming Congresswoman Barbara Cubin to seek a sixth term. The five term Republican has fought hard to defend her voting record while facing a rare G-O-P primary battle from four opponents, including veteran State Senator Cale Case and Cheyenne attorney Bruce Asay. A newspaper poll gives Cubin the lead, but undecided voters and the possibility of a number of Democrats crossing over has made the race more interesting. In addition, 15 state lawmakers are facing primary challenges in Tuesday's election.
