Trump-Backed Candidate Foster Friess Loses in Wyoming GOP Governor Race
During Donald Trump’s disastrous Tuesday, which saw him implicated in a federal crime, he found time to tweet support for Wyoming GOP governor candidate Foster Friess. By the end of the day, even that had gone wrong. Freiss, a wealthy donor, was beaten soundly by State Treasurer Mark Gordon, despite the last-minute presidential endorsement. Trump tweeted Tuesday morning: “Go VOTE TODAY for Foster Friess - He will be a fantastic Governor! Strong on Crime, Borders & 2nd Amendment. Loves our Military & our Vets. He has my complete and total Endorsement!” Friess conceded and said Gordon would make a “good governor.” Gordon had 32 percent of the Republican primary vote to Friess’ 26 percent when the Associated Press called the primary early Wednesday.
