Mar 26, 2014 - The Associated PressCHEYENNE -- Appointed Wyoming State Treasurer Mark Gordon will seek a full term.
He launched his campaign to continue holding that office on Monday.
Gordon was making campaign stops around the state Tuesday after announcing his campaign in his hometown of Buffalo on Monday.
Gordon is a Republican.
He has been treasurer since Gov. Matt Mead appointed him in November 2012 to replace Treasurer Joe Meyer, who died of lung cancer.
Gordon sought the Republican nomination to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2008 but was defeated by Cynthia Lummis, who went on to win the seat and still holds it. At the time, Gordon was criticized by some Republicans for his then-recent support of several Democratic candidates.
The Wyoming treasurer's office manages and invests more than $17 billion in state money.
