Related to the first woman to run for U.S. President, she already has her sights set on becoming the first woman Governor of North Dakota
She made history when she became the first contestant from frigid North Dakota ever to walk off with the Miss America crown. Cara Mund may make history again if she succeeds in her goal of becoming the state’s first woman Governor. Who knows…the Presidency itself could be within her sights. After all, the queen is related to Victoria Woodhull, the first woman who ran for President of the United States in 1972.
Senator John Hoeven honored the Miss America Tuesday on the floor of the U.S. Senate, proudly noting that Cara made history as the first North Dakotan to nab the crown. Mund also served as an intern in Senator Hoeven’s office from August through December 2016.
“Cara is truly impressive,” the Senator said, “and we’re proud to have her representing North Dakota and now our entire nation.
“Following graduation from Brown University with a degree in Business, Entrepreneurship, and Organizations, Cara served as an intern in my Washington, DC office. She did a tremendous job helping us serve the people of North Dakota.
“While only 23, she has a long history of public and community service. For the past 10 years, she has organized an annual Make-A-Wish Fashion Show, which has raised over $78,500 to help make dreams come true for more than 20 kids facing life-altering conditions.
“It’s only fitting that after spending so much of her life making others dreams come true, that Cara’s own dream was made a reality last night.
“She is well-deserving of the title. Cara does a wonderful job representing North Dakota and we have no doubt she will continue to make our state proud during her reign as Miss America.”
A graduate of Brown University, Cara’s long-term goal is to become North Dakota’s first female Governor. Stay tuned….
