CHEYENNE – Republican candidate for governor Foster Friess is slowly developing policy positions, but it’s hard to tell yet how his broad political convictions will compare to his primary opponents who are more well-versed in state government issues.

Friess – a successful investor, GOP megadonor, national news commentator and philanthropist – made a stop Wednesday in Cheyenne to meet with voters as his campaign gets underway. He was the seventh Republican to enter the GOP primary to replace Republican Gov. Matt Mead as his second and final term nears its end.
