      WYOMING: The Wyoming Republican Central Committee on Tuesday narrowed
      from 30 to five the list of candidates to replace the late US Senator
      Craig Thomas (R). The state party must submit a list of three names to
      Governor Dave Freudenthal (D), who must then select one of the three
      to fill the seat until the November 2008 special election. After three
      rounds of voting, the party activists cut the list to three names:
      former State GOP Chair Tom Sansonetti, State Senator John Barrasso and
      former State Treasurer Cynthia Lummis. Sansonetti -- the most
      conservative of the three finalists -- placed first in all three
      rounds of voting. Barrasso, a physician, said his top priority is
      promoting rural health care. Lummis is a longtime Freudenthal foe, so
      her appointment seems unlikely.
