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.”
