POWELL (WNE) — The Wyoming Democratic Party selected Powell as the location for its 2020 convention, slated for June 6.

“We will be expecting anywhere from 200-400 people depending on which candidates are still in the running and how many delegates each have after the caucuses on April 4, 2020,” said Kelly Tamblyn, Park County Democratic Party chairwoman.

The convention will be held at Northwest College.

Tamblyn said the party chose Powell as the location for its bid “with hopes of highlighting the diversity of people, places, and daily living within just one corner of our vast state.”
