The importance of the 2018 election cannot be overstated. Locally, statewide, and nationally, so much is on the line. Republicans have made it clear that healthcare, education funding, and public lands are on the chopping block if we don’t make significant gains in November.
We will need your help to prevail.
Wyoming Democrats have incredible opportunities to pick up seats during this cycle. U.S. Senate candidate Gary Trauner is crisscrossing our state, knocking on doors, and holding town halls. He is doing something his opponent refuses to do—actually talking to voters and listening to their concerns! Gary Trauner will continue to take his directions from the people of Wyoming after being elected to the U.S. Senate. #TraunerTime #CountryB4Party
History is in our favor in the Wyoming gubernatorial race too. Did you know that Wyoming has not elected back-to-back Republican Governors since 1966? We’ll see that trend continue in 2018 because Mary Throne is working tirelessly to be the next Governor of Wyoming. She’s serious about growing our economy so that everyone can prosper. She’s the only candidate who will stop the Legislature from slashing our children’s futures to pay for bad decisions. Voters in the Equality State agree. #StateBeforeParty
At the county and legislative levels, the quality of candidates is incredible. They come from a variety of backgrounds—from a school psychologist to a retired trona miner—and are running professional, effective campaigns.
- James W Byrd 4 Wyoming Secretary of State
- Jeff Dockter for Auditor
- Lee Ann Stephenson for Senate District 11
- Joan Brinkley for Wyoming House District 5
Simply put, I have not seen this level of energy, organization, and opportunity in years.
