Race Analysis

Like many Mountain West states, Wyoming is staunchly Republican at the presidential level. It hasn’t sent a Democrat to Washington as part of its congressional delegation since 1976. (Fun fact: It is one of only two states that has always had a single-member congressional delegation.)

However, the politics of the state are more complicated at the gubernatorial level. Republicans have only managed to win a gubernatorial race in Wyoming four times in the last 40 years. But Matt Mead, the state’s second Republican governor since 1974, seems well-poised for re-election. Barring a major gaffe or swing in the national mood, he seems a good bet for re-election.
