Speaker Of The House To Run For Governor

Wyoming Speaker of the House of Representatives Colin Simpson confirmed what most had suspected for some time, that he would indeed be running for governor. In a media release issued Monday afternoon, Simpson indicated that he would officially launch his campaign this Thursday with stops in Cheyenne, Casper and Cody.

Simpson joins a crowded field seeking the Republican Party
nomination in the governor's race. Already running are State
Auditor Rita Meyer, Ron Micheli, a former state legislator and
former head of the state agricultural department and Matt Mead, a former U.S. attorney for Wyoming. Simpson has not given any details of his campaign platform, but is expected to do so Thursday.
