President Trump demonstrated strong leadership today by cancelling the Republican National Convention celebration in Jacksonville, FL. While delegates will be disappointed to miss out on the much anticipated experience, it is of importance to note that President Trump placed the safety and health of Americans first, consistent with his priorities since the day this virus landed on our shores.The truth is, a celebration is not needed to excite and energize our party - we are already fired up to re-elect President Trump and ensure that he will continue, with our help, to Keep America Great!
President Trump hit the nail on the head, "Against every law of society and nature, our children are taught in school to hate their own country, and to believe that the men and women who built it were not heroes, but that were villains. The radical view of American history is a web of lies — all perspective is removed, every virtue is obscured, every motive is twisted, every fact is distorted, and every flaw is magnified until the history is purged and the record is disfigured beyond all recognition."
Corey Steinmetz was elected by the Wyoming State Central Committee in June of 2019 to fill the vacancy in the office of National Committeeman. He was re-elected in 2020 by delegates from every county at the Republican State Convention.
Corey first registered as a Republican because as a fourth generation Wyomingite, he identified with Ronald Reagan who championed the values articulated in the long standing Platform of the Wyoming Republican Party. Corey is no stranger to the grass roots local level of the Republican Party as he was elected Precinct Committeeman for Lingle in 2012, Goshen County Chairman in 2014 and District 7 Representative for Goshen, Niobrara, Weston and Crook Counties in 2014 where he served until his election to National Committeeman.
There have been several articles recently published in the press and on social media raising questions regarding the leadership of the Wyoming Republican Party. It appears to be a concerted and coordinated effort by a few to sow discord among our ranks. These articles have painted an inaccurate picture of how the WY GOP operates, both implying and outright claiming that our policy decisions are being made by one person or a small group of unnamed people. They are pushing a narrative that there are some “dark and shrouded” figures who control the party. Anyone familiar with our Party, however, knows that is not how this works. The purpose of this article is to set the record straight.
Every two years the Wyoming Republican Party meets for its State Convention. Delegates sent to the Convention are selected at a local level being first elected at the County Convention. Members are reinvigorated each season after a productive State Convention. As the Wyoming GOP presses forward to win for Republican Values now is a good time to share some interesting facts about the Republican Party.
Harriet Hageman has almost become a household name when considering Republicans in Wyoming. Hailing from Laramie County where she practices law, Hageman has dedicated much of her professional career to protecting private property rights, water rights, and constitutional rights.

The work of the Wyoming Republican Party was concluded in the culminating event, the June Convention of 2020. In an unusual year, the party was required to split the Convention, the first happening over Zoom in May and the second taking place last weekend in person in Gillette, WY. The Delegates to the Wyoming State Republican Convention have now completed their work for 2020. The June 27th meeting was convened to complete the Party’s business, which included ratifying the selection of Wyoming Delegates to the Republican National Convention to support the re-election of President Donald J. Trump, and ratifying the election of our National Committeeman Corey Steinmetz and our National Committeewoman, Harriet Hageman. Changes to the Party’s Bylaws, Platforms and Resolutions were also addressed.
