Wyoming GOP Members Anticipate Legal Action After State Party Passes By-Law Amendments | 307 Politics


Participants adopted a series of rules to speed up the agenda and implement policy changes before the convention deadline of 4 p.m. Saturday. After some party members attempted to remove some of the status changes from the consent agenda to vote on them individually and slow down the vote, the full committee voted to approve all of the status changes without debate, putting thus end of the convention.

A number of delegates from Teton, Campbell, Laramie, Albany and Natrona counties were seen leaving the convention hall in protest after the vote.

In comments on the convention floor regarding one of the status changes, Laramie County Delegate Caitlin Long suggested that a lawsuit will likely be filed in the coming weeks regarding the process.

“I have just learned that there is a lawsuit that is going to be filed,” she said on the floor. “And I put it on file as proof of that.”

Long did not respond to a request for comment over the weekend. Natrona County Republican Party Chairman Joe McGinley said on Sunday that a second trial could also arise and would likely deal with potential statutes violations that occurred during the convention.

The convention – a face-to-face affair only held at Cam-Plex in Gillette – brought together 347 delegates, up from 463 who were eligible to vote at a remote convention held last month because of the coronavirus.
