County GOP leader runs for State House
In what could be one of the more high-profile 2016 Wyoming legislative races, Laramie County Republican leader Jared Olsen is running for the House District 11 seat currently held by Democratic Rep. Mary Throne.
Throne is the Wyoming House Minority Floor Leader and says she is running for another term. She is considered one of the state's more influential Democrats and has been elected to the seat five times.
So far no other candidates in either party have announced plans to run for the seat, but since the formal filing period for state candidates is coming up May 12-27, that could change.
