Right Women PAC Endorses Ruth Edmonds in Ohioʼs Fifteenth Congressional District

WASHINGTON, DC – Right Women PAC announced today its endorsement of Ruth Edmonds, candidate for Ohioʼs 15th Congressional District.

Ruth’s life experience, her Biblical worldview, and her Christian faith have uniquely prepared her to stand up against the race-baiting bullies of the radical Left. Backing down from the Truth is not an option for Ruth.

As the wife of a retired police officer and National Guardsman, Ruth will steadfastly support our police and military. She has long served her community with “One nation under God, with liberty and justice for all” as her core mission.

Ruth is committed to the true Civil Rights movement of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and she will work to help us achieve an America where our children “will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

Ruth shares Dr. King’s vision, and she will unabashedly debunk Critical Race Theory, the dangerous ideology that rejects Dr. King’s dream and instead reduces individuals to the color of their skin. She will be a powerful voice in Congress, countering the growing BLM/Marxist movement.

An unafraid advocate for the value of all life, Ruth will defend the unborn and champion ways to help women who are pregnant and find themselves in difficult life circumstances.

Raised by her grandmother to work hard and take personal responsibility, Ruth has risen to leadership as a public servant, as a woman of business, in her ministry, and in her community.

She has been a key aide to several elected officials, a paralegal, a corporate manager, a civil rights leader, and she also serves on the leadership team at her church.

“Right Women is proud to endorse Ruth Edmonds today,” said Debbie Meadows, Executive Director of Right Women PAC. “Ruth is not afraid to take on the swamp. Ruth believes America is worth fighting for, and she is willing to make the sacrifice. As a bold defender of our conservative values and the America First agenda, she knows that President Trump’s policies did indeed put our nation on the right path.”

“Ohio, as well as America, will be well-served to have Ruth Edmonds in Congress, as a defender of the Constitution and all of our cherished freedoms,” Right Women Board Member Elaine Norman.

Right Women PAC Endorses Anna Paulina Luna in Florida’s Thirteenth Congressional District

WASHINGTON, DC – Right Women PAC announced today its endorsement of Anna Paulina Luna, candidate for Florida’s Thirteenth Congressional District.

Luna, who ran in 2020 to defeat ultra-liberal Charlie Crist, has announced that she will run for the seat again in 2022. Crist, a career politician, has announced he will run for governor again, leaving this seat open. With Florida’s redistricting, it is possible that the 13th District of Florida will become slightly more Republican.

Luna’s spirited campaign in 2020 garnered the attention of conservative grassroots activists across the country. President Donald Trump endorsed Anna in the 2020 cycle, as well. During that campaign, Twitter banned Anna Paulina Luna’s account – a badge of honor for true conservatives who speak their minds. Luna demonstrated her tenacity after the Twitter ban, as she successfully connected with residents in the 13th District of Florida through other means. Conservatives can count on Anna to defend free speech and rein in Big Tech.

Anna Paulina Luna is an Air Force veteran and small-business owner who always stands firm in her conservative convictions. Today she speaks directly to all of the communities in her district through her popular conservative Hispanic radio show.

“Right Women today endorsed Anna Paulina Luna again this cycle. Right Women was so proud of the campaign she ran in 2020, and we look forward to her victory in 2022,” said Debbie Meadows, Executive Director of Right Women PAC. “She is an enthusiastic defender of the dignity of human life, and a champion for our Second Amendment rights. Her voice is needed in Congress.”

“Anna is committed to helping our nation implement the America First agenda. As a business owner, Anna understands what we need to do for a full economic recovery, and she will work to implement those reforms once elected,” said Right Women Board Member Amy Kate Budd.

Right Women PAC’s mission is simple and strategic: to help elect genuinely conservative women to Congress. Right Women only endorses women candidates who demonstrate they are: pro-Constitution, pro-life, supportive of President Trump’s America First agenda, staunch defenders of the Second Amendment and law enforcement agents, and advocates for border security, religious freedom, Israel, and our veterans.

Right Women PAC Endorses Heidi St. John in Washington’s Third Congressional District

WASHINGTON, DC – Right Women PAC announced today its endorsement of Heidi St. John, candidate for Washington State's Third Congressional District.

Heidi St. John is following her famous advice to "Get off the bench." After much prayer, and with the full support of her husband and family, this well-known speaker, author, and leader has jumped into the race for the Congressional seat representing the area her family has lived in for four generations.

A wife, mother of seven, and grandmother, as well as a businesswoman and popular podcast host, Heidi understands the struggles that Washingtonians are facing. She feels the same alarm they do as we watch our precious freedoms being rapidly stripped away by the radical left. Heidi has experienced firsthand censorship by social media simply because she is a conservative and has unyieldingly supported President Trump and his America First movement.

"Already a trusted leader whose deep Christian faith and patriotism are always on display, Heidi is what we need in Congress – a woman of her word, a candidate who will do what she promises,” said Debbie Meadows, Executive Director of Right Women PAC.

Heidi is a commonsense conservative who understands that missteps in Washington, DC often have painful consequences for everyday Americans. She sees the rising costs of gas and heating and knows those escalating costs are the direct result of the current administration’s misguided policies that make our nation dependent on foreign oil. And Heidi recognizes the dangers of the taxpayer-funded public schools’ indoctrination programs, which teach the younger generations to hate America.

"America needs patriots like Heidi to help us get America back on track and stop the dangerous creep of socialism," said Right Women Board Member Elaine Norman.

Right Women PAC’s mission is simple and strategic: to help elect genuinely conservative women to Congress. Right Women only endorses women candidates who demonstrate they are: pro-Constitution, pro-life, supportive of President Trump’s Make America Great Again agenda, staunch defenders of the Second Amendment and law enforcement agents, and advocates for border security, religious freedom, Israel, and our veterans.

WASHINGTON, DC – Right Women PAC congratulates Yvette Herrell on her victory in Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District in a stunning upset.

Right Women PAC Congratulates Marjorie Taylor Greene for Winning in Georgia’s Fourteenth Congressional District

WASHINGTON, DC – Right Women PAC today congratulated Marjorie Taylor Greene for her victory in Georgia’s 14th Congressional District for the U.S. House of Representatives. Greene won with more than 75% of the vote.

Marjorie Taylor Greene earned Right Women PAC’s endorsement earlier in 2020 because of her strong commitment to pro-life issues and her deep understanding of what our economy needs for a full recovery. She has been a vocal supporter of the free market and a central issue in her campaign was her fight against the socialist agenda.

“Right Women congratulates Marjorie Taylor Greene on her victory in this race,” said Debbie Meadows, Right Women’s executive director. “She is a rock-solid conservative who will be a leader in the House. We are looking forward to welcoming her to Congress and to the House Freedom Caucus. The residents of Georgia’s fourteenth district are fortunate to have her as their congresswoman-elect.”

“Marjorie easily won her race because she consistently made the campaign a stark contrast between two opposing visions for the future of America,” Right Women board member Amy Kate Budd added. “She was able to showcase how conservatism offers a bright future for individuals, families, and our entire country. The radical Left only offers Big Government solutions and a dim view of the future. Marjorie did a great job of highlighting the difference between these two worldviews, and the voters chose opportunity and optimism.”

‘It Can’t Be Worse’: How Republican Women Are Trying to Rebuild

NEW HAVEN — For Republican women, 2018 was rock bottom. At least, that’s how Julie Conway, a Republican consultant, described it to students attending the Women’s Campaign School at Yale.

The tally: They sank from 23 representatives in the House to 13, a drop more than twice as sharp as House Republicans’ over all. They account for 31 percent of women in state legislatures, down from 38 percent last year. The Senate is a semi-bright spot, with a record eight Republican women — but Democrats have 17.

“Let’s just get it out there,” Ms. Conway said. “Now we can move on.”

And Republican women are moving on: As of last month, 187 had filed paperwork or expressed interest in running for the House in 2020, said Representative Susan Brooks of Indiana, the National Republican Congressional Committee’s recruitment chairwoman. In the entire 2018 election cycle, 120 ran.

The surge is largely because of how dismal 2018 was — or, more to the point, because of how dismal it wasn’t for women on the other side of the aisle. As their own losses poured in, Republicans watched Democratic women make historic gains and decided to adopt the Democrats’ strategy for themselves.

At the Yale campaign school last month, they were remarkably open about the source of their inspiration. One after another, the Republican students and speakers praised Democrats for successfully recruiting and training women, and said the Republican Party should follow their lead.

Among the 80 women who gathered in New Haven for the weeklong campaign school — known for alumni like Kirsten Gillibrand and Gabrielle Giffords, and also for being almost sadistically intensive — 12 were Republican. That might not sound like a lot. But never before in the program’s 25-year history had Republicans reached double digits.

Women at the event were confident that 2020 would be better than 2018 — “It can’t be worse,” Jennifer Pierotti Lim, co-founder of Republican Women for Progress, said dryly. They were equally clear that saving Republican women from political extinction was a challenge far bigger than one election cycle.

This is because the deeper problem is very simple: Democratic women have a bench. Republican women don’t.

Where the problem came from

Part of the trouble is demographic. There are just more Democratic than Republican women among registered voters, and President Trump, who is less popular among women than among men, has not helped.

Republicans also lag strategically in several areas: in recruiting female candidates, training them, funding them and helping them through primaries.

The phrase “an Emily’s List for the right” has been the rallying cry of many groups, but none have anywhere near the same resources or influence. Emily’s List, built to elect Democratic women who support abortion rights, spent more than $100 million in the 2018 cycle alone. The group Ms. Conway leads, Value in Electing Women PAC, by comparison, has spent about $6.5 million over two decades.

Ruth Papazian, 62, a Republican who is challenging Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York, said she had seen the funding differences directly. On the left, “they blanket all the races with money because they don’t know who’s going to rise to the top, and they want to make sure that an up-and-coming talent doesn’t die on the vine for lack of money,” she said. “Republicans don’t do that.”

Beyond the lack of resources, many Republican women have chosen to stand back. Some of their reasons, like a tendency to question their own qualifications, are common to women regardless of party.

But others are bound up in conservative principles, like a respect for hierarchy, some of the Republicans at the Yale training said. They said they saw, among many conservative women, a sense of obligation to “wait their turn” and an aversion to emphasizing gender as an asset, as Democratic women have.

“I’m not someone who likes to play identity politics,” said Kara Webster, 37, who is interested in running for office in New Jersey in the future. “But at some point, you do need to play a little bit into that in terms of making sure that our party is reflective of everybody in this country.”

Maria Vismale, 29, who wants to run for office in Henrico County, Va., said she thought many conservative women like her were hesitant to be leaders.

“We take a more submissive approach, and we have a tendency to be afraid to ask and assert ourselves, to be seen as blunt or controversial,” she said.

But younger conservatives may be breaking from that view, both because of changing norms and because of the example that Democrats have set.

“We’ve always been the leaders of the family, of the church, of our local book club as conservative women, but it just hasn’t been on a national or federal scale,” Ms. Vismale said. But in politics, she added, “We’ve been letting men take the lead, and we can’t do that.”

Historically, those who do run have found little support from the national party. It isn’t just that the national Republican leadership doesn’t operate in primaries, where more than half of the Republican women who ran last year lost. There is also a sense among some Republican women that party leaders don’t value them.

“We are so welcomed in the background to help volunteer, to help spread information, but when it comes time for a woman to really step up into the spotlight, I almost feel like it’s crickets,” Elana Doyle, 26, said. “I admire that about the Democrats, how they embrace women and they put them on a pedestal and they say, ‘We need you.’”

Ms. Doyle said she was upset not only by the lack of Republican women in politics, but by the lack of Republican mothers. She plans to run for the Massachusetts Legislature in a few years, when her children — a 3-year-old girl and a 9-month-old boy — are older.

What’s happening now

In the post-midterm reckoning, an array of Republican groups have come together, hoping to provide cumulatively what none of them can alone.

In addition to Ms. Conway’s group, there is Republican Women for Progress, Maggie’s List, She Leads and Winning for Women — and, as of this year, Elevate PAC, which Representative Elise Stefanik of New York created to support Republican women in congressional primaries.

Winning for Women and Elevate PAC, known as E-PAC, are focusing specifically on primaries. Early money — the founding principle of Emily’s List, whose name is short for Early Money Is Like Yeast — is particularly important for women, who often face greater challenges fund-raising than male candidates do. But very few groups on the right provide it.

E-PAC gives early funding to Republican women who meet certain criteria, including raising $250,000 in their first quarter. Ms. Stefanik speaks personally with candidates about budgeting, email lists and other granular aspects of campaigns.

Winning for Women, in addition to funding candidates and TV ads, has been recruiting candidates who don’t have traditional political backgrounds — something Democrats have done to great effect.

“Republican recruiters typically look at chambers of commerce or professional societies, which is great but mostly male-dominated,” said Olivia Perez-Cubas, a spokeswoman for the group. “I think the left does this very well. We’re kind of taking a page out of their playbook, finding women who are not traditional but highly qualified.”

She Should Run, a nonpartisan group, has been hosting events in workplaces, looking for women who are interested in leadership roles in their professional lives and encouraging them to translate those skills to politics. Its chief executive, Erin Loos Cutraro, said she and her colleagues were working hard to bring in more Republican women.

“It’s not that they don’t exist,” Ms. Loos Cutraro said. “It’s that they don’t naturally see themselves in this greater dialogue that’s happening around women running for office.”

She said it usually took a personal phone call from her to convince Republican women to participate in the group’s events.

“We need you at the table,” she said she told them. “And if not you, who?”

Where they’re heading

An early test of all of this organizing will be the Republican primary runoff on Tuesday in North Carolina’s Third Congressional District, where a pediatrician, Joan Perry, is running against State Representative Greg Murphy. Dr. Perry is backed by all 13 Republican women in the House, as well as several of the groups focused on Republican women. Outside groups have poured more than $1 million into the race.

All of this reflects a broader shift among Republican women: They are mobilizing to get themselves elected, because they no longer believe the party will do it.

The future of the Republican Party, not just Republican women, could depend on their success.

Without women, “we’re not going to win elections,” Ms. Perez-Cubas said. “That political reality is very in your face. You can’t miss it anymore.”

Correction: 

An earlier version of this article misstated how many Republican women are running for the House in 2020, based on information from Representative Susan Brooks. There are 187 who have expressed interest in running, but not all of them have filed paperwork.
