Wyoming Democratic Chairman Is Disappointed With Election Results

Wyoming Democrats

The Wyoming Republican Party's sweeping victories on Election night left the chairman of the Wyoming Democrats disappointed. 

Ana Cuprill says she is especially disappointed that Mike Ceballos lost his bid for State Superintendent. She says Ceballos would have had the ability to bring the State Department of Education, the legislature, and the Governor’s office together.

“He’s just that kind of guy and it will be interesting to see if we have to continue with another four years of not being able to work together with the Department of Education.

Cuprill says while Ceballos' support of Common Core probably hurt him, she says it was more about party line voting.

“You know voting with your party is just easier to do than educating yourself on what’s going on out there.”

Cuprill says the evening was not a total loss.  Even though they had hoped to gain six seats in the Legislature, she says it was an accomplishment for Democrats to gain one seat.  She notes that they were very close to gaining more, which gives them momentum moving forward.
