Wyoming State Superintendent Announces Gov. Run

January 31, 2013

Saddle up -- the Cowboy State has a gubernatorial primary on its hands.

During a Thursday morning appearance on Cheyenne's WGAB-AM radio, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill, a Republican, announced her intention to seek Wyoming's governorship, days after Republican Gov. Matt Mead signed legislation reducing her role. Mead has yet to officially announce a reelection bid. WGAB-AM has more:

Governor Matt Mead this week signed into law a bill that essentially strips the superintendent's office of leadership of the state Department of Education, reassigning those duties to a person appointed by the governor. Hill has filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of that move, which she says is an attempt to circumvent the will of the people. She says that is one of the main reasons she is running, adding she has received calls and e-mails from across the state in support of her position.

The Billings Gazette reports that Hill has run afoul of state lawmakers during her tenure as superintendent. Hill and Mead ran on the same Republican statewide ticket in 2010, both winning by wide margins. Mead, who is in his first term, won a crowded GOP primary by just 703 votes that year.
