Conservative businessman and GOP donor Foster Friess is running for governor in Wyoming, where incumbent Republican Governor Matt Mead is term-limited and cannot seek a third term. Several Republicans are running in an August 21 primary, where Friess is up against the state treasurer Mark Gordon, businessman Bill Dahlin, and attorney and GOP activist Harriet Hageman.
Mary Throne, a former state legislator from Cheyenne, is the only Democrat in the race.
"Iām running for governor to make sure Wyoming stays the land of dreams for the next generation. The twenty-first-century economy was made for a place like Wyoming. Let's work together to create an environment where businesses thrive. I humbly ask for your support," Friess said in this biographical ad titled "Wyoming Spirit," his first of the campaign.
