CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A physician from Cheyenne says people throughout Wyoming are pulling for him as he embarks on his campaign for governor.

Taylor Haynes is a Republican. Republican State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill also is running for governor, while Republican Gov. Matt Mead is hinting that he's going to seek re-election.

Haynes is 68 and retired from his practice as a surgeon in adult and pediatric urology. Haynes now owns Mountain Benefits Management Company, a third-party administrator of health benefits.

Haynes served on the University of Wyoming Board of Trustees for 12 years and got 14,000 write-in votes for governor in 2010. He announced his latest campaign Thursday.

His campaign platform includes looser regulation of business.

No Democrats are running for governor yet.
