Democratic candidate Mary Throne was elected to the state Legislature in 2006 representing House District 11 out of Cheyenne. She said in her first six years, people from all corners of the state would come together and work on problems regardless of party affiliation. But in the final four years, she said it started to change and become more like the rest of the country, with focus on partisanship rather than common solutions.
Throne said she would not run away from any of her votes and is not changing her views to become governor. The boom and bust cycle needs to be broken, she said. She emphasized her belief that the state needs to take advantage of all Wyoming’s entrepreneurial energy.
