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:
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.
