Wyoming Running Closer to Runoff Elections
Wyoming lawmakers have advanced a proposal to switch the state’s elections to a runoff system, after rejecting a similar proposal three months ago.
Runoff election systems are favored in states in which a political party holds a strong majority.
Wyoming, a republican stronghold, has seen a divide grow between main party republicans and more conservative candidates.
As the more conservative side of the party grows, the fear of vote splitting during primaries increases.
