CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Gov. Matt Mead made it official on Tuesday: He kicked off his campaign for re-election with a public announcement at a hotel in Cheyenne.

First Lady Carol Mead introduced her husband, telling the crowd that Tuesday was Mead’s birthday. He just turned 52.

Gov. Mead emphasized he believes he’s performed well in his first years in office. He pointed to national rankings that place Wyoming among the top states for its business climate and financial condition.

The Republican governor says his administration has built on the successes of previous governors and the hard work of the Legislature and private industry in the state.

Mead’s grandfather, the late Clifford Hansen, was governor and U.S. senator.
