Wyoming earth haters are raising money with both fists:
Former Vice President Dick Cheney is using his popularity with Republican conservatives to give a boost to Mitt Romney, hosting a fundraiser for the party's likely nominee at a mountain valley resort as well as a private dinner at his Wyoming home. Romney has avoided appearing in public with Cheney or with former President George W. Bush — both are seen as divisive figures by many of the swing voters he needs to win over if he's going to defeat President Barack Obama. --AP, via Billings GazetteFrom Wyofile:
U.S. Sen. John Barrasso has a $2.5 million campaign fund that no other Wyoming politician is expected to match in time for the Nov. 6 general election, much less the August 21 primary.Wyoming kills more workers than nearly every other state and screams very loudly when the feds threaten to withhold pork barrel bucks.
In case you missed this forum piece in the Rapid City Journal: it should scare the shit out of you.
