Unofficial: Five local candidates lose to Republicans in statewide, federal races

Three Fremont County residents ran to represent Wyoming in the U.S. House of Representatives this year: Democrat Lynnette Greybull, Libertarian Richard Brubaker, and Marissa Joy Selvig with the Constitution Party.

Despite those local ties, however, Fremont County voted for the Republican in the race: Harriet Hageman earned 8,539 local ballots on Tuesday, or 63.66 percent of the total cast.

Greybull earned 3,519 ballots, or 26.23 percent; Selvig earned 686 ballots, or 5.11 percent; and Brubaker earned 420 ballots, or 3.13 percent.
