Daytonian Greg Hunter to take on Liz Cheney for Wyoming House

For those of you who remember the old days of this blog, there was a time when I tried a daily vlog. Back in 2010, when video blogging wasn’t quite the thing it is today. It was a point, counterpoint, with me being the left and my friend and neighbor Greg Hunter would be the right.

Greg moved off to Laramie Wyoming about half a dozen years ago, found a nice girl, and settled down.

Apparently, she changed him. Because last night, Greg won the democratic nomination for the Wyoming House. Yes, THE NOMINATION, because Wyoming, while beautiful, has a puny population and it’s one of the states that has 2 Senators and only 1 House seat.

His opponent in November? Liz Cheney, the non-gay daughter of former VP Dick Cheney who currently occupies the seat.

Now, if you think my chances of winning an election are slim, Hunter for Wyoming may be even slimmer in Wyoming where Democrats are about as rare as actual intelligent leadership in Dayton Ohio.

He won a primary where only 17,603 D’s turned out, and 103,329 R’s turned out. Greg won with 7,942 over his opponent, Travis Helm who garnered 4,961 votes despite being the early entrant to the race.

Of course, the dirty little secret that Greg used to be an avid R- might have actually helped him.

Flash back to the most popular episode of the “Dayton Grassroots Daily Show, v93 Open Carry” from 2010 and you hear Greg say to me: “Because Liberals are stupid, D is for dummy, don’t you have a D on your head, I have an R”

Wyoming is a very Red state, the two Republican challengers each got more votes than Hunter did in the Republican Primary but, still didn’t come anywhere near close to Cheney. However, if anyone thinks anything is predictable in November, they are wrong, and we may be saying hello to Hunter in Congress and Theresa Gasper in the Ohio 10. Why? Because in the last election we saw a lot of voters say no to career politicians, and that anyone could be put in office. President Trump winning was as much as vote the bastards out as it was “Make America Great Again.” And for those smart Wyomingites who care about guns, god and legalizing pot so all their money stops flowing to neighboring states, Greg Hunter may be just OK with them, afterall, it’s only one seat… and it’s not going to be in the Oval Office.

Congratulations Greg!
