This morning I accepted a position in the state of Iowa. After more than 12 years in Rock Springs, I am going to be relocating in December.

I appreciate the voters who turned in early ballots and voted for me.  I appreciated all of the support during the primary. It is with regret that I must withdraw from the election as it wouldn’t be ethically proper to stay in the race knowing I would have to immediately resign should I have been successful.

I do hope another republican will run for the seat in two years. I have contacted the Wyoming Secretary of State and formally withdrew my name from consideration this afternoon.”
