Haynes Announces Run For Governor
Cheyenne Physician Dr. Taylor Haynes says he is running for Governor of Wyoming in 2014.
Haynes says he plans a "common sense' campaign which will stress adherence to the U.S. Constituition, property rights, personal freedom, and the right to bear arms as among his key issues. He says his travels around Wyoming have convinced him that people want jobs and freedom from government interference in their lives. Haynes ran as an independent candidate for governor in 2010, but says he has now re-joined the Republican Party and will compete for that party's nomination.
Haynes has launched a campaign website and says he has registered with the Wyoming Secretary of State's office as an exploratory campaign. Haynes joins state Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill as candidates who have announced their intention to run for governor in 2014. Both Haynes and Hill are Republicans. Incumbent Republican Governor Matt Mead has so far not said whether he will run for re-election next year.
