The Wyoming State Senate is considering SF0097, introduced by Patriot Senator Bo Biteman, to protect the integrity of the Wyoming primaries. This hugely important measure ensures that voters in each party choose their nominees for the General Election separately, that’s how it should be! It makes perfect sense for only Democrats to vote in the Democratic primary and only Republicans to vote in the Republican primary. This invoice has my Full and Full Endorsement and Support. Every member of the Wyoming Senate should vote for SF0097. Thank you!
