Wyoming's primary election is scheduled for August 19. The general election is November 4.
Casper -- Cheyenne businessman Ed Murray announced his bid for the Wyoming Secretary of State position. Murray said his private sector background will benefit the state, and that he is different from other candidates because he is not a career politician. He will run against Ed Buchanan, Pete Illoway, Clark Stith, Jennifer Young and Dan Zwonitzer. Incumbent Max Maxfield announced last month he would not seek a third term.
