WCF President/CEO Sam Bennett’s Statement on the West Virginia Gubernatorial Democratic Primary Outcome

(WASHINGTON, DC) – “WCF-endorsed candidate and current West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant was the only woman running in West Virginia’s Democratic Gubernatorial Primary. Five men were running against her. While Natalie did not win her primary on May 14th, she led a remarkable campaign that made me – and the entire WCF community – proud to support her. I am confident Natalie will continue to serve West Virginians as their Secretary of State, and sincerely hope WCF has the opportunity to support Natalie in her political career again.”

The Women’s Campaign Forum is the country’s only national, non-partisan organization dedicated to advancing the political participation and leadership of women who support reproductive health choices for all.
