A Cheyenne attorney is the new chairman of the Wyoming Republican Party. Matt Micheli will take over the reins at a time when traditional republicans are battling with a right wing element of the party. But Micheli says disagreements between republicans is nothing new, he just wants to make sure any debates remain civil.
“I think at the end of the day we all know we are on the same team and we all have the same goal and that there’s a lot of great things we can do together.”
Micheli says there’s a lot of interest in topics from conservative spending to limited government that he wants to continue.
“To build the republican brand, to put out a positive message of who we are as republicans, what we stand for, you know the positive solutions that we have and the things that our ideas bring to the table.”
He is the son of former gubernatorial candidate and current State Board of Education member Ron Micheli.
