Although it is disheartening to have had our office front defamed by protestors it comes as no surprise. The organization of the Left is astounding and their tactics are consistently undermining morality. We will clean up our windows and continue in the fight for justice for all.

CHEYENNE, WY - On May 8th, the Wyoming GOP opened its 2020 State Convention with two full days of Credentials and Nominating/Elections Committee work and Convention business via videoconferencing. In light of COVID 19-related restrictions on gatherings over 10 people, the State Central Committee approved a plan to meet virtually for part of the Convention business, using a video and audio conferencing platform widely and successfully used by many businesses and organizations. On Saturday, Convention members voted to approve the agenda and floor rules, which included the use of a polling/balloting platform also widely used by businesses and organizations. This balloting program has also been used by other States in their virtual Regional and State GOP conventions over last few weeks and was recommended. This was one of the largest Republican virtual conventions held in the U.S. to date.
After a full day of work on party elections, questions were raised late Saturday evening as to whether technical or process difficulties occurred in the balloting. The Party is assessing the concerns raised. The WYGOP and the RNC are committed to election integrity. The Wyoming GOP staff will be evaluating the situation in the coming days. Additional information will be forthcoming.
Wyoming GOP Chairman Frank Eathorne stated:
Video conferencing and digital balloting are not the ideal platforms for conventions as large as ours was. Our convention team did an excellent job navigating trying conditions. The hours and days ahead will be prioritized with assessing how the technology worked in a real-world application.
The Wyoming GOP took the advice of the Republican National Committee and hired one of its 3 most-highly recommended parliamentarians to guide the party through its first – and hopefully last – virtual state convention. As to the May 9th election results, certified parliamentarian Al Gage advised the party as follows:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CHEYENNE, WY - Ahead of the Special Legislative Session to be held later this week, the Wyoming Republican Party polled Republicans across the state to allow them to weigh in on the best way for the Wyoming Legislature to distribute the $1.25 billion dollars in CARES Act funds. The survey was opened on April 23rd and closed May 1st.
The National Day of Prayer pre dates the founding of our nation. In 1775 the Continental Congress set aside a day for prayer. Modern day National prayer events commonly organize prayer around the seven centers of influence: government, military, media and arts, business, education, church, and family. Participating in events where communities gather to pray for the seven centers of influence, focusing on national repentance and revival has been a life-changing spiritual awakening.
