The new Chairman of the Wyoming Republican Party is Matt Micheli. Micheli is the son of former state gubernatorial candidate and legislator Ron Micheli. He takes over the job following some infighting within the party that included concerns over legislative action surrounding former State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill.
Micheli not only wants to help settle things down between the moderate and conservative wings of the party, he also hopes to continue to get more young people involved in party politics. Micheli is in his 30’s and he hopes his presence will help. He tells Wyoming Public Radio’s Bob Beck says he’s not overly concerned about minor bickering inside the party.
