CHEYENNE, Wyoming: The Republican state legislature is heavily Republican in partisan representation, and that balance is unlikely to change on November 2.[1]

In Wyoming, there are twice as many voters who identify as Republican than Democrats.[1]

Additionally, Wyoming is the 45th least competitive state in terms of fielding two major parties in the general election. In 68% of the seats up for election in 2010, there is only one major party candidate.

The uncompetitiveness of the state extends to the rest of the ballot, where Republicans are expected to easily carry every race.[1] The Republican gubernatorial candidate has a current 30-point lead over the Democratic candidate.

The lack of competitiveness in the general election, combined with an already heavily partisan state, makes for fairly uneventful November 2 races.
