Don Wills formally kicked off his campaign for Governor of Wyoming on Tuesday afternoon in the Capitol Rotunda. He is the first Wyoming independent candidate for Governor to be on the ballot since 1958.
Wills says he wants to reduce the burden of state government on citizens and stand firm against what he calls the federal government takeover of state government authority and responsibilities.
If elected, Wills says his priorities will be to end Wyoming’s commitment to Common Core, reduce total state government spending by 20 percent by 2018 and repeal the 10 cent per gallon fuel tax increase.

Wills is facing incumbent Republican Governor Matt Mead and Democratic candidate Pete Gosar in the November’s general election.
