Laramie, Wy – One of the people who ran against Barbara Cubin for her seat in the U-S Congress is ready to run again. Ron Akin was the Democratic candidate in 2002. He announced Tuesday that he has hired political consultants and plans on being better prepared.
Akin says he spent 20 thousand dollars in the last election cycle; he wants to raise 600 thousand this time. He says money is important to a campaign.
Akin says he will not seek help from the National Democratic Party because he wants to remain independent.
And this was not a formal announcement that Akin entered the race, just that he plans to.
