CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Democrat Pete Gosar has won his party's primary for Wyoming governor.

Gosar, a state pilot, ran unopposed in Tuesday's primary.

Gosar stepped down as chairman of the Wyoming Democratic Party to run when no other candidates surfaced.

This is Gosar's second campaign for governor in the overwhelmingly Republican state.

Gosar campaigned on issues including worker safety and health care. He's hoping that by November, voters will come to know him and his stances and look past his party affiliation.
