Schweitzer Addresses Wyoming State Democratic Convention

by jhwygirl

Oops. using the JH News & Guide article, dated Friday, I assumed from its wording that the dinner had already passed…so instead of this article reading “gave the keynote address” it has been changed to read “will give the keynote address. No wonder the state paper’s haven’t covered it yet!

Governor Brian Schweitzer and Wyoming’s Governor Freudenthal will give the keynote addresses at Saturday’s dinner, which is the closing event for Wyoming’s State Democratic Convention.

Wyoming as 6 superdelegates, only one of which has committed to a presidential candidate. Pete Jorgensen (of Jackson Wyoming) has committed to Barack Obama – the other 5 remain uncommitted. Wyoming also has 12 delegates to the Democratic National Convention, and those delegates will be chosen during this weekend’s convention.

It will be a busy weekend with plenty of fun at The Cowboy Bar and The Silver Dollar, undoubtedly. Michael Shay, of hummingbirdminds, is there. Shay, an Obama delegate, and will also be blogging the DNC convention with Jay, Matt and I (and a whole bunch of others).

It looks like we’re going to have to wait for Michael’s report once he gets back home – Wyoming papers don’t seem to have any coverage up (yet) of the gathering.

Meanwhile, up the road at Jenny Lake Lodge in Grand Teton Park (maybe a 20 minute drive) is the Responsible Energy Development Symposium, sponsored by Trout Unlimited and being attended by more than 180 people. Sounds like something our Good Governor might be interested in – I wonder if he slipped in on that one too.

    Kind of funny that Schweitzer gives a speech to the Wyoming Democrats when he has put $3 million aside to sue Wyoming over the Tongue river issue and natural gas production. They must not realize that he is Montana’s trojan horse

    I think it’s a little quid pro quo, John. Freudenthal spoke to the Billings Democrats at their big Truman Dinner earlier this month (as did Bill Clinton).

    Meanwhile, Bohlinger goes to Three Forks and waits around the cemetary there…to give a speech at Bozeman’s Vietnam Memorial Wall.

    Maybe they both should do a little better job remembering where their duty lies, instead of being lost in Three Forks or…National Politics.

  4. Not sure if Gov. Freudenthal and Wyoming Democratic Party Chair John Millin have “officially” declared as super-delegates for Obama. But they’ve openly supported Obama, so it’s just a matter of time.

    I missed the Dem dinner bash Saturday in Jackson. After a long day of conventioneering, my wife and I decided to go out to dinner and take a walk in the snow around the town square. I heard later that the two Govs teased each other over cross-border politics.

    I did go to to the luncheon that day to hear Bill Broyles speak. I’ve always liked his writing. He gave one dynamite talk, hitting Bush and McCain hard on Iraq. Go to my blog for details.
