Haynes denies Colorado residency allegations

Taylor Haynes, the maverick candidate in the Republican primary race for governor, is brushing off charges that he does not live in Wyoming. Questions about his residency first appeared last week in an article published by WyoFile, an internet news platform.

Haynes rejected the charge in a video published on his campaign website over the weekend.
