GOP looks to grow Capitol advantage

Nov 6, 2012 - The Associated Press

CHEYENNE (AP) -- Wyoming's Republican Party is looking to expand its dominance in the state Legislature -- but third-party candidates add a new dimension in legislative races.

Republicans hold 26 of 30 state Senate seats and 50 of 60 House seats. Only five of 15 Senate seats and 22 House seats up for election Tuesday are being contested, meaning the GOP will maintain control of both chambers.
