Rex Rammell is no stranger to running for statewide elected office. Wikipedia describes the 61-year-old veterinarian as a “perennial candidate for public office in Idaho and Wyoming.” Rammell ran for Wyoming’s congressional seat in 2016, coming in seventh behind Liz Cheney. He ran for governor as a Constitutional Candidate in 2018. He’s running this year as a Republican.
Rammell will kick off his gubernatorial campaign today in Cheyenne.
While that may not be news, what Rammell plans to say as he kicks off his campaign is. If elected, Rammell says he plans to seize 30 million acres of federally managed public lands in the state. Details of the seizure and its ramifications will be provided at the press conference.
Rammell’s campaign kickoff is set for 1 p.m. today on the Capitol steps in Cheyenne.
