Evanston, WY (AP) - Three candidates for the Wyoming Republican Party's nomination in the 2014 governor's race addressed delegates at the state party convention Saturday in Evanston.
Gov. Matt Mead is seeking re-election. He said the state's economy has done well under his tenure over the past three years.
Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill emphasized that she fought back when Mead last year signed into law a measure that stripped her office of control over the state education department.
A proposal from some delegates to censure Mead for his support of the education bill last year was still pending as of mid-afternoon.
Cheyenne rancher and retired physician Taylor Haynes said he will work to improve the regulatory climate to allow the private sector to create more jobs.
