The candidates for Sheridan County's District 21 seat in the Wyoming Senate offered voters a clear choice Thursday night in their support, or lack of it, for ENDOW – Governor Matt Mead's Economically Needed Diversity Options for Wyoming initiative.

Democrat Hollis Hackman said he favors the initiative.

Biteman, running on the Republican ticket, said he doesn't think ENDOW is the way Wyoming should go.

The two candidates also disagreed on whether the state of Wyoming should continue to provide a $600,000 per year subsidy to Sheridan for commercial air service. Biteman doesn't support the subsidy.

Hackman said he does support the subsidy.

The two candidates faced off during Thursday night's forum at the WYO Theater. We will hear from other candidates at the forum in future stories.
