Supporting selection of Republican nominees by caucus and convention

WHEREAS, Wyoming’s election laws do not recognize or respect the fact that the

“primary” is a means to select, or nominate, the candidates of the respective political parties; and

WHEREAS, the party primary selection process has been corrupted so as to permit members of one political party to participate in the candidate nomination process of another party: and

WHEREAS, the Wyoming state legislature has repeatedly thwarted efforts to close the primary nomination process to registered party members only; and

WHEREAS, political parties in other states, such as North Dakota and Utah, have

developed methods of nominating candidates that avoid the interference of another party; and

WHEREAS, here in Wyoming, the Constitution Party and the Libertarian Party both nominate their candidates in conventions of registered party members; and

WHEREAS, in the interests of securing the true purpose of the nominating process, the Wyoming Republican Party desires an exploration of the possibility of nominating our candidates through the caucus and convention process; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, that the Chairman of the Wyoming Republican Party appoint a committee to develop a plan, to be approved and adopted by the State Central Committee, to take back our Republican candidate nomination process through a closed Republican caucus and/or convention.


Wyoming Republican Party, 21 May 15 SCC
