Laramie County District Court Throws Out Case Against Taylor Haynes Candidacy.

After weeks of speculation by the media concerning his eligibility to run for Governor, Republican candidate Dr. Taylor Haynes, announced that the court has ruled in his favor and he will continue his campaign.
This came after Secretary of State Ed Buchanan, former campaign manager for Harriet Hageman, and Attorney General Peter Michael asked the court to issue an injunction to suspend Haynes’ campaign and issued a press release on July 24th stating that Dr. Haynes was not eligible run for Governor. “This was a politically motivated action based on information they received from an unverified anonymous source.” Haynes said.
Today, District Judge Thomas Campbell, denied Buchanan and Michael’s request for an injunction against Haynes. Dr. Haynes expressed satisfaction with the ruling. “Our supporters who understood this was a politically motivated attack have stuck with us during this process, but unfortunately some people may have been confused by the reports and cast early votes for a different candidate.”
Haynes explained that he lived at his ranch in Laramie County until moving to his Albany County ranch which straddles the Wyoming-Colorado border. Haynes went on to say that every previous owner of the ranch since it was homesteaded in Wyoming nearly 150 years ago has been a Wyoming resident, has voted in Wyoming, sent their children to Wyoming schools, paid taxes in Wyoming and been considered residents of Wyoming. “I am the first owner in the ranch’s long history to have my Wyoming residency questioned by the Albany County Clerk.”
Haynes said, “We have not stopped campaigning during all the disruption and we will continue pressing hard to get the word out that I am eligible to be Governor of the great state of Wyoming.”
Haynes’ is a constitutionalist who has been active in leadership positions in many local, statewide and national organizations, including twelve years on the University of Wyoming Board of Trustees. He has been a prominent member of the Republican Party, currently serving as Precinct Chair of District 45-2 Albany County. He served as a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 2016 where Donald J. Trump was nominated.
