Gary Moncrief was quoted in a Wyoming Public Media report on uncontested races for state legislatures.

In “Wyoming Above National Average For Uncontested Races,” Moncrief said a lack of competition can limit the ability of voters to hold politicians accountable.

“What that means in terms of democratic theory is there’s no way for the public to hold someone accountable for their voting behavior if there’s no viable way for them to be contested in an election and to have a legitimate chance of losing,” he said.
