CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Pete Gosar says he plans to hold more debates before the November general election even if incumbent Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead won’t participate.

Mead has repeatedly rebuffed Gosar’s call to hold live debates in which members of the public would pose questions over the Internet.

Mead has said he’s satisfied two conventional debates set for next month in Casper and Riverton are enough to allow the voters to assess the candidates.

Gosar announced Thursday he plans to proceed with debates even without Mead’s participation. He says he would welcome participation of Libertarian Party candidate Dee Cozzens and independent candidate Don Wills.

Gosar stepped down as Wyoming Democratic Party chairman to run for governor earlier this year after no other candidate in the party came forward.
