Cowgirl Run Fund Announces Inaugural Endorsements

CASPER, Wyo — Earlier this year, a politically diverse group of women from across Wyoming launched the Cowgirl Run Fund, a nonpartisan political action committee (PAC) with the goal of supporting women who are running for office in the state.

Today, the Cowgirl Run Fund announced its endorsements. That list included numerous incumbents at all levels of office as well as political newcomers.

“These endorsements are in keeping with our belief that women can and should have their voices heard and share a bigger role in shaping Wyoming policy, especially at such a critical time in the Equality State’s history,” said co-founder JoAnn Skeim-True. “We’re proud to endorse a mix of women who have served our state and its communities as well as women who are running for office for the first time.”

“All along, we’ve been committed to endorsing candidates who have, among other things, a history of support for other women, ongoing civic and community engagement, a clear campaign plan, and the skills and capacity to mount competitive and constructive campaigns, as well as commitment to working towards making Wyoming a better place for all of us,” said Skeim-True.

Co-founder, Jen Simon, added, “These candidates exemplify core Wyoming values. We know each of them will make positive contributions to the political landscape. And this is exactly the time we need their voices the most.”
