Two Candidates Associated with Minor Parties in Past File for Democratic Primary for U.S. Senate in Wyoming

Filing for Democratic and Republican primaries closes in Wyoming on Friday, May 30. So far the only announced Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate, both of whom have filed, are William Bryk and Al Hamburg.

Bryk is an attorney in Brooklyn, New York, who is fascinated by election law. He once served as the Prohibition Party representative to the board of the Coalition for Free & Open Elections (COFOE). The Tenth Circuit ruled in 2000 that candidates for Congress need not be registered voters. Wyoming is in the Tenth Circuit.

Hamburg was the New Alliance Party’s nominee for U.S. Senate in Wyoming in 1988. He polled 868 votes, which was .49% of the total.

So far no one is running in the Democratic primary for U.S. House, or for Secretary of State. No Democrat had declared for Governor, until May 13, when state party chair Pete Gosar said he will run.

Other states with no Democratic candidates for certain statewide office are Alabama for U.S. Senate (and a few statewide judicial races), and Missouri State Auditor.

Wyoming’s two qualified minor parties, the Libertarian and Constitution Parties, nominate by convention. They can wait until mid-August to do that, if they wish.

  1. William Bryk came in second in the Democratic U.S. Senate primaries in Idaho and Oregon last Tuesday. In Oregon, he got around 5% of the vote, finishing ahead of an Oregon resident, Pavel Goberman.

    In Idaho, Bryk got an astonishing 30% of the vote. He has never traveled west of Buffalo, New York.

    In addition to the Wyoming Senate primary, Bryk is also running in the Alaska Senate primary.

    I imagine that running in four U.S. Senate primaries in one year must set some kind of record.
