SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Lt. Gov. Deidre Henderson was named vice chairwoman of the Republican Lieutenant Governors Association, the organization announced last week.

The association is part of the Republican State Leadership Committee and works to help Republicans get elected to lieutenant governor positions across the country.

"The American people are looking at state Republican leaders to lead while the federal government continues to fail them, so during this pivotal presidential election cycle, our work as Republican leaders in the states has become more important than ever before," Henderson stated. "We must work together in lockstep as we press forward to elect more Republican lieutenant governors nationwide."

Henderson will work alongside South Carolina Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette, who was named chairwoman, and Nevada Lt. Gov. Stavros Anthony, the finance chairman. She is seeking reelection this fall as Gov. Spencer Cox's running mate.

Cox is also serving in a national leadership role, as chairman of the National Governors Association where he has promoted his "Disagree Better" campaign across the country.
