Candidates Visit Wyoming
Jackson, Wy – Two presidential hopefuls swung through the state this week. Democrat Bill Richardson and Republican Mitt Romney were in Jackson shaking hands with locals and filling the war chest for the battle ahead.
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson canceled the meet and greet scheduled before his fundraiser on Tuesday because his plane was delayed. But Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney had better luck.
