Hillary Clinton’s campaign recently announced it will begin organizing in Wyoming. The move is part of the campaign’s goal to bring grassroots campaigning to all states before the 2016 presidential election.
Clinton is the only presidential hopeful with a presence in Wyoming so far. The campaign has hired Laramie local Peter Bishop, who previously worked on Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign.
Aimee Van Cleave is the Wyoming Democratic Party’s Interim Executive Director. She says Hillary’s campaign is getting off to an early start.
"One of the things I can appreciate most about her campaign is that we’re seeing presence in Wyoming this early," says Van Cleave. "Something that we haven’t seen from other presidential elections. That we have someone on the ground, who’s already beginning to work and organize, setting up house meetings and recruiting volunteers. So this is happening now.
Clinton is currently only one of candidates in the Democratic presidential primary: the other is Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
