Conservative businessman Foster Friess, who is running as a Republican candidate for governor of Wyoming, released an exclusive look at his first campaign ad to The Daily Caller Tuesday.

“Wyoming has smiled on me and my family,” he says in the ad. “Now I’m running for governor to make sure Wyoming stays the land of dreams for the next generation.”

In the ad, Friess says he wants to “cut wasteful spending, tap into our abundant energy resources and help Wyoming businesses grow and diversify.”

“I have decided to put myself out as someone who might be able to serve the people of Wyoming because my background lends me to the ability to increase the returns on our state funds without dramatically increasing the risk,” Friess said at the Wyoming Republican Party’s convention in April after announcing his candidacy.
