CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - High-profile Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton hasn’t given up on deep red Wyoming, a state even Republican candidates have so far ignored.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1EAQreK) that Clinton will have a paid staff member in the state, part of her effort to create a grassroots organizing program in each state.

None of the Republican presidential candidates have so far announced plans for a physical presence in Wyoming, where registered Republicans outnumber Democrats by more than three to one.

Clinton’s campaign says Laramie resident Peter Bishop will be the Wyoming organizer.

Bishop is a University of Wyoming graduate who worked on President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and several state legislative campaigns.

Wyoming Democratic Party Chairwoman Ana Cuprill says it is good for candidates to remember that that state is not trivial.
