CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The state of Wyoming agrees that a state law imposing restrictions on third-party political candidate fundraising is unconstitutional and cannot be enforced.

Jennifer Young of Torrington is running for secretary of state as a Constitution Party candidate.

Young and supporter Donald Wills of Pine Bluffs recently sued the state challenging a campaign finance law that limited fundraising for candidates whose parties don’t participate in primary elections.

U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson on Tuesday approved a settlement between the plaintiffs and the state ending the lawsuit.

Cheyenne lawyer Steve Klein with the Wyoming Liberty Group and represents Young and Mills.

Klein says the settlement means Young and other third-party candidates may begin fundraising immediately. Klein says his group wants the Wyoming Legislature to amend state law to reflect the settlement.
