Bernadine L. Craft is an American politician, currently Democratic member of the Wyoming State Senate and previously a member of Wyoming House of Representatives, representing the 12th district since 2013.

Craft first ran for and won a seat in the Wyoming House of Representatives in 2006, representing the city of Rock Springs. In 2012, Craft announced that she would run for the 12th district in the Wyoming Senate, replacing outgoing Marty Martin. JoAnn Dayton succeeded Craft as the Democratic nominee, but lost to Stephen Watt. Craft, on the other hand, won the election without any opposition.

Craft was sworn in as a State Senator on January 7, 2013. She was subsequently selected to be Senate Minority Whip.

In addition to being in the Wyoming Senate, Craft serves as Executive Director of the Sweetwater Board of Cooperative Educational Services in Rock Springs, Wyoming. She became an ordained Episcopalian Minister in the Spring of 2014.

Craft declined to run for reelection in 2016.[1]
