Wyoming lawmakers again oppose Trump-backed election changes

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming lawmakers have again decided against major election changes supported by former President Donald Trump.

A state legislative committee voted Thursday to indefinitely to set aside a bill that would establish runoff elections.

Proponents of the change point out that some candidates in Wyoming win crowded primaries with less than a majority of the vote.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports Trump supports the change while he backs a primary rival for Liz Cheney.

Trump opposes Cheney for voting to impeach him for his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

At least three Republicans are running against Cheney including Trump-backed attorney Harriet Hageman.
