CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A Republican leader for Wyoming’s most populated county says Gov. Matt Mead isn’t likely to be censured during May’s statewide GOP convention.

GOP leaders in Hot Springs and Platte counties this month censured the Republican governor for signing a bill last year replacing the superintendent of public instruction with an appointee as head of the state’s Department of Education.

Superintendent Cindy Hill challenged the law and the Wyoming Supreme Court ruled it was unconstitutional. Hill is challenging Mead in the Republican gubernatorial primary.

The GOP convention begins May 1.

Laramie County Republican Party treasurer Jared Olsen tells the Wyoming Tribune Eagle (https://bit.ly/1mri3Mw ) there may be more censure resolutions proposed during the gathering.

But he says a small group is pushing the issue and he does not see it passing.
