At a Wyoming gubernatorial debate last night, Republican Gov. Matt Mead said that with a 10th Circuit pro-equality ruling in place, the federal court ruling due Monday on the state's gay marriage ban should not be appealed.
I don't think we should appeal the ruling…I think if the court rules, with the 10th Circuit already ruling, i don't see there would be merit in appealing the judge's order.
As joe.my.god points out, Wyoming's Attorney General Peter K. Micheal was appointed by Mead's predecessor, who currently serves as a Obama-nominated judge with the 10th Circuit – meaning there's a good chance the Equality State will live up to its name come Monday.
And if you care to watch the Wyoming debate, AFTER THE JUMP…
