Wyoming Democratic Party presents
the 2019

 Nellie Tayloe Ross


Nellie Tayloe Ross Banquet

Please join the Wyoming Democratic Party for an evening celebrating the important role women have played in Wyoming's political history.

As the first state to recognize a woman's right to vote, to appoint a female judge, and the first to elect a woman as governor, Wyoming has certainly earned its nickname "The Equality State."

This year's banquet will take place Saturday, February 23, 2019 at Little America Hotel in Cheyenne. Cocktail reception will begin at 6:00pm, with banquet hall doors opening at 7pm.

Welcome Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs!

Secretary Hobbs pulled off a historic win in 2018, not only beating a popular Republican in a red state, but holding her ground for days after the election, waiting for every ballot to be counted even though the race had already been called for her opponent. She emerged from the race victorious and has agreed to share her lessons learned and the ways the Arizona Democratic Party has begun to achieve success after years of Republican control.

Secretary Hobbs first served as a Representative in the Arizona House before being elected to the Senate, where she became the Minority Leader.As Secretary of State, she is committed to ensuring every citizen has the right and opportunity to vote, so that all voices are heard.Her husband Pat is a Wyoming native, and is looking forward to accompanying her next weekend. Learn more about Secretary Hobbs here.
