August 20, 2014 Jackson Hole No Comments

The votes are in from Tuesday’s Wyoming Primary. Gov. Matt Mead easily won his bid and will face Democrat Pete Gosar in November. Sen. Mike Enzi was also a clear winner in his race and will face Democrat Charlie Hardy. In local races, Sara Flitner and Mark Nowlin were the top vote getters and will face off for Mayor of Jackson in the general election.  One upset was Chairman of the Teton County Board of Commissioners Hank Phibbs, who only received 17 percent of the vote and will not move on to the November election. Voter turnout in Teton County was estimated to be about 30 percent
