Last days seems all change drasticly for Democratic Party for this race in Wyoming, one of more red states of all country.

Now seems D Freudenthal not will be affected by term limits, and will can bid again for reelection. That is very good new for Democratic Party in Wyoming.

In the home state of D Cheney, democrat governor D Freudenthal win last gubernatorial election with 70% of votes and became reelected. Now, seems again sufficently strong for bid again for reelection and win.

De Freudenthal seems the alone democrat who can win this race.

This is the list of possible candidates:

  1. David Duane Freudenthal: WY 1950 Governor of Wyoming 03- .
  1. Kathleen M Karpan: WY 1942 WY Secretary of State 87-95. Lost for Senate 96. Lost for Governor 94.

In Wyoming not have Lieutenant Governor, and the second statewide office is the Secretary of State. For that is included K Karpan.

This is the shortest list what i make until now in all states. Not is strange. Republicans are very strong in this state. D Cheney and former governor J Geringer are the highest level republican politics without office in this state. But with D Freudenthal maybe sufficent for win gubernatorial race again.

This diary make the diary for all gubernatorial races must be updated.

I remember the resumes of these series of diaries about senate and gubernatorial races:

2009-2010 ELECTIONS: All senate races.
2009-2010 ELECTIONS: All gubernatorial races.

In a 0-10 scale, like this:

--- 00,000 ---
Safe Republican
--- 01,429 ---
Likely Republican
--- 02,857 ---
Leans Republican

Toss-Up
--- 05,714 ---
Leans Democratic
--- 07,142 ---
Likely Democratic
--- 08,571 ---
Safe Democratic
--- 10,000 ---

For gubernatorial races, the states with democratic incumbents what seems more easy for win again are:

NH-Gov: Incumbent J Lynch (D-1952) win in 2008 with 70%.
CO-Gov: Incumbent W Ritter (D-1956) win in 2006 with 56%.
