Wyoming Congressional Candidate Bolts GOP to Seek Constitution Party Nomination

A lesser known Republican candidate in Wyoming’s wild GOP primary for the state’s lone U.S. House seat has decided to leave the party and instead seek the Constitution Party’s backing.

Marissa Selvig was previously the mayor of Pavillion, a town of about 200 people. Her long-shot bid for the GOP nomination put her in the mix of several well-funded challengers to incumbent Congresswoman Liz Cheney.

“One of the main reasons I decided to change is because of what I see inside of the Republican Party, which is big money, finger pointing and negative politics,” Selvig told Cowboy State Daily on Monday. “When I’m going around the state speaking with people, I’m talking about bringing virtue back to governance and looking at how we can reform our government to get back to its constitutional state.”

    The more the left gets organized, in reaction to Trump, the more the right will also.
    In this case, the people will bail on Trump’s GOP and join the CP.
    IMO.

    2020 Constitution Party presidential candidate Don Blankenship was not on the ballot in Wyoming, so I was thinking they had lost ballot access there. Blankenship must not have qualified for the ballot there due to a paperwork filing error.

    I keep forgetting the Constitution Party exists. Trump’s Republican adminisration kind of sucked up all the paleoconservative oxygen.

    Andy,
    you are good.
    Did you vote for Jo/Spike?
    What was your decision about joining my campaign?
    Interested in Treasurer?”

    I already said that I voted for the Jo/Spike ticket here and on Ballot Access News multiple times. They were not my ideal, but they were “good enough” so I voted for them anyway.

    I don ‘t think I’m a good fit for your campaign staff, and I doubt you have any money anyway.

    Who is the LP and Greens running for that race? I could maybe see a free for all with Cheney as an Independent and maybe a minor party candidate could win with 20%? Probably not a Green in Wyoming but maybe a Lib?

  6. Robert Milnes

    Don’t need it.
    If only a green or lib on the ballot, that one could win in a close three way race.
    IF all greens and libs agree to vote coordinate.

  7. Tony From Long Island

    Why would two parties, with diametrically opposing philosophies agree to “vote coordinate?”

  8. Ed Johnson

    There’s no Green Party in Wyoming. There’s nothing to coordinate with, unless it’s the Constitution Party. There won’t be a close 3 way race. The Republicans will totally dominate, like usual. Cheney has lost her base of support, which was GOP. She would not come close to winning as an independent , even if the Democrats don’t run a candidate. Libertarians are relatively strong in Wyoming, but nowhere near strong enough to seriously compete for the only US House seat in the state. They’re barely starting to crack the state legislature.
