WyoRINO 2022

It seems that the eyes of many Wyoming Republicans have been opened and the purge of RINOs has begun!

The Wyoming Primary Election resulted in numerous RINO politicians being given the boot. Those include:

  • Rep. J.D. Williams (HD 02 – Goshen)
  • Rep. Shelly Duncan (HD 05 – Goshen)
  • Rep. Aaron Clausen (HD 06 – Niobrara)
  • Rep. Joe MacGuire (HD 35 – Natrona)
  • Rep. Pat Sweeney (HD 58 – Natrona)
  • Sen. R.J. Kost (SD 19 – Park)
  • Sen. Drew Perkins (SD 29 – Natrona)

Many legislators that upheld the Republican values they were originally elected on were re-elected to retain their seats. This is a good thing as they will be great examples for incoming freshmen legislators.

In addition, several legislative newcomers that have been reported to be strong conservatives, were elected to open seats and/or new seats (due to redistricting). Time will soon tell as the 2023 General Session will be here before we know it.

As always, please keep in mind that WyoRINO is not affiliated with the Wyoming State Republican Party. However, just as the election integrity process is something to be mindful of, so is the integrity of the Republican party and the candidates who run on the Republican ticket. It is up to us to expose RINO legislators who are Dems in sheep’s clothing.

Help us continue our mission to expose WyoRINOs in our state and encourage true, practicing Republicans to represent the people of Wyoming!

What is a RINO? A Republican in Name Only

Have you as a loyal Republican, gone to the polls year after year, voting for candidates with an “R” beside their name, trusting they would legislate and vote like a Republican but only to be disappointed?

Don’t feel bad – so have we.

The time is long overdue to hold politicians accountable for big government, big regulation, big taxation laws – values that the Republican party does NOT support.

This is the primary reason WyoRINO.com was created – to expose liberal Wyoming Republicans who violate our Wyoming Republican values.

WyoRINO.com is an index that is based on the Platform and the Resolutions of the Wyoming Republican Party, which are passed in convention every two years by thousands of elected grass roots Republicans.  This valuable tool scores Wyoming legislators based on their adherence to the timeless Republican values which will always inform and direct our party and country, regardless of current events.  These lofty principles include but are not limited to, adherence to U.S. Constitution, the defense of life, liberty and property, limited government, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms, fiscal responsibility and a free market economy.

If your Wyoming state senator or representative ran on the Republican Party ticket, it is correct and logical to assume that once elected, your legislator will actually vote like a Republican.  Far too often, however, that is not the case.  This is why WyoRINO.com was established – to expose liberal Wyoming Republicans who hold office.

The percentages which are indicated on the Voting Index reflect the cumulative scores based on ten key votes during each Wyoming Legislative session.  These particular bills were chosen by Ride for the Brand, Wyoming due to their easily identifiable traits in relation to Republican values. To examine the bills which were rated and their explanation, click on the WyoRINO Voting Index tab.

We encourage readers to examine how their own state legislators voted on each of the ten key measures. Ride for the Brand, Wyoming believes that a score below 70% indicates a RINO legislator. In the world of education, anything below 70% is considered a failing grade and we agree.

We also encourage readers and voters to commend their legislators for their constitutional votes and urge improvement where needed.
