The State Houses – What’s At Stake in 2010

Thirty-nine states will be electing a governor during the 2009-2010 election cycle.

Freudenthal to Ride Off Into the Sunset

By · Mar, 05 2010

Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal, a popular two term Democrat has decided he won’t challenge the state’s term limit law and run for a third term.

Democrats had been waiting on the sidelines as “Governor Dave” contemplated another campaign. Three Republicans, former US Attorney Matt Mead, state auditor Rita Meyer, and former state legislator Ron Micheli are already vying for their party’s nomination. In a state where Republicans outnumber Democrats 2-to-1, the GOP nominee is likely to be an overwhelming favorite to win in November.
