Wyo’s Gordon Announces Reelection Bid


       Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon says he’s running for a second term. He made the announcement Monday in Buffalo. 

       No other Republicans have filed and the Democrats have not yet announced a candidate for the August primary.

       Gordon’s first term included managing the COVID-19 pandemic and a loss of state revenue due to a decline in oil and gas production that led to deep budget cuts. 

     He angered many Wyoming residents with a statewide mask mandate during a COVID-19 spike in Dec 2020, but lifted it 4 months later and promised not to implement another one. 

      Gordon did not mandate vaccines, but did encourage both using masks and getting vaccinated..
