Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - The Wyoming Democratic Party held a press conference at their headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Party leaders discussed what they called failures of the recent legislative session, and presented a new strategy for the 2014 election cycle.
Pete Gosar, party chairman spoke first about the disappointing policies passed during the budget session last month. He criticized the Republican-led legislature for not passing medicaid expansion. He also criticized Governor Matt Mead for not supporting a bill to raise the minimum wage, which would have helped close the state's gender gap.
After Gosar, executive director Robin Van Ausdall laid out the direction of the party for the upcoming election cycle. Van Ausdall talked about a strategy that holds the party accountable for their decisions over the last 4 years. "It will not be personal attacks or ad homonym this will be holding the majority party accountable for the bad policy decisions," said Van Ausdall.
