Casper Star-Tribune endorses Trauner
I never thought that I'd see the day :) Hopefully we'll see a non GOPer in our rep seat for the first time in forever.]

Give Trauner a chance
to make a difference

Star-Tribune Editorial Board

A six-term member of Congress should be a huge asset to any state.

Unfortunately, Rep. Barbara Cubin delivers more rancor than achievement.

Wyoming should thank Cubin for her service in Washington, but it's time for her to come home. On Tuesday, voters should give Democrat Gary Trauner an opportunity to be what Cubin no longer is: an effective representative for Wyoming.

Why Trauner?

We think Trauner has the potential to be an excellent representative. He is an intelligent, articulate and hard-working candidate, who spent the past 10 months knocking on more than 15,000 doors. That much listening requires genuine enthusiasm for the job.

Contrary to a fusillade of television attack ads, nothing about Trauner is at odds with "Wyoming values." He recognizes the importance of recreational opportunities and public access to public lands. He has, in fact, demonstrated a stronger commitment to this issue than Cubin.

1. Gasp - Cheney's hometown paper
endorsing Trauner! I think we might get this one. I've been calling Park County Dems today and they are excited - many have already voted.

Anecdotally, I have not seen even one sign or bumper sticker for Cubin up here in Cody and I have seen mnay for Trauner.
