  •  I'd be glad to have Colin representing Wyoming (1+ / 0-)

    Alan Simpson may have a reputation as very conservative, but don't paint his whole family with that brush.  His son Colin is intelligent and reasonable, and I for one would be glad to have him in statewide office, if only he would run. He does serve in the state legislature, but he has yet to run for any statewide office. He seems to be content with his law practice, for now, and I'm not sure politics is in his blood.

    Alan's brother Pete doesn't strike me as conservative at all, and his kids even less. His Eldest son Millward is a Fruedenthal appointee, running the Wyoming Arts Council.  Pete's younger son, Pete, is an actor, He was with the Blue Men for years, and is now with a spin-off group. Pete's daughter Maggie is a hippie musician, living in Boulder, Colorado.

      I wasn't being snarky. He's too moderate for many WY Republicans.
