CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Republican Party has voted to censure a member of the Natrona County delegation for her role in founding a nonpartisan political action committee that gave money to some Democratic candidates.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported that state committeewoman JoAnn True was censured in a 36-25 vote over the weekend.

True founded the Cowgirl Run Fund which aimed at increasing female representation in office, regardless of political affiliation.

Former Wyoming Republican National Committeewoman Marti Halverson said the party was rubbed the wrong way because she endorsed and funded four Democratic women, against four incumbent Republicans.
