Dave Freudenthal on Principles & Values

Democratic WY Governor

Same man as governor as he was as candidate

Bill Sniffin, who lost in the Republican gubernatorial primary, said Freudenthal has lived up to his billing. I think the man that we got as governor is 100 percent identical to the man who ran for governor, he said. Hes a fiscal conservative. He appeals to Republicans and much as Democrats, which is mandatory in order to get anything done in Wyoming if youre a Democrat.

Freudenthal, an underdog in both the 2002 Democratic primary and the general election, has made it look fairly easy. His GOP opponent was oil and gas businessman Eli Bebout, whom Freudenthal defeated by only 3,789 votes. I dont know yet if its a fun job, but its clearly an honor. Theres no question about it, he said.

You have good days and you have bad days, Freudenthal said. Freudenthal wishes he had extra time to travel and promises a concerted effort to visit more communities in 2004.
