When the announcement was made it turned out to be Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke.
And I think that's a good thing.
I know very little about Zinke, but I do know that the Republican Montanan is opposed to the transfer of Federal lands, which was something that was much less certain about Rodgers. And I also know that as he comes from Montana, he'll be familiar with the situation and conditions down here in Wyoming, which are very similar. Moreover the former Navy SEAL is a lifelong hunter and fisherman. He's drawn some initial praise from sporting quarters.
A good turn of events. In some ways, I feel like we may have dodged a bit of a bullet on this one.
