There are four major candidates in Wyoming’s 17 August 2010 primary who are seeking the Republican nomination for the office of Governor. They are: former U.S. attorney Matt Mead; State Auditor Rita Meyer; outgoing House Speaker Colin Simpson; and then there’s the creationist — former legislator and director of the Department of Agriculture Ron Micheli.
Last week we posted Creationist in Wyoming Governor’s Race, in which we wrote about one of those candidates — Ron Micheli. He’s a tea party member who describes himself as the “real conservative” among the Republican contenders. He believes that Wyoming teachers should be required — required! — to teach creationism (but in a non-sectarian way).
Here’s the website of the Wyoming Secretary of State’s office where the Wyoming primary results should be reported, but we can’t yet find the page for the Governor’s race. It’ll turn up during the day, and when it does we’ll fix the link.
Update: They’re getting the page set up: 2010 Unofficial Primary Election Results.
And so, dear reader, we await the judgment of the citizens of Wyoming. Will they — in their wisdom — choose a flaming, flat-out, foaming-at-the-mouth, full-blown creationist maniac to be the GOP’s candidate for Governor? We shall see.
