Recap of Statewide Races

Here's the recap of statewide races.

GOVERNOR
Gov. Matt Mead won the Republican ticket and will be challenged in the General Election by Democrat Pete Gosar. Gosar stepped down as chairman of the Wyoming Democratic Party to run when no other candidates surfaced.

U.S. HOUSE SEAT
Rep. Cynthia Lummis has won the Republican primary election for Wyoming's lone congressional seat. Lummis was first elected to the House in 2008. She will face Democrat Richard Grayson, an Arizona resident, who has done no campaigning and ran unopposed.

U.S. SENATE SEAT
Wyoming's Mike Enzi has won the Republican primary election for U.S. Senate, beating four challengers, including Bryan Miller of Sheridan. He'll face Democratic challenger Charlie Hardy in the General Election.

STATE TREASURER
Incumbent state Treasurer Mark Gordon has won the Republican nomination for a full four-year term in the office. There was no Democratic candidate for treasurer. The Democrats' only hope of fielding an opponent to Gordon is with a write-in candidate.

SECRETARY OF STATE
Cheyenne businessman Ed Murray has narrowly won the Republican primary for secretary of state, and faces no Democratic challenger for the General Election.

STATE SUPERINTENDENT
Jillian Balow has won a three-way primary for the Republican nomination for Wyoming superintendent of public instruction. She'll face Democrat Mike Ceballos in the General Election.
