Mimi Walters

Running for Reelection, CA-45

Mimi Walters is the leader other leaders look to for inspiration.

As an executive at a major investment banking firm, Mimi fought her way to the top, igniting a desire to help others succeed. This passion inspired Mimi to found the California Women’s Leadership Association, an organization dedicated to electing conservative women to leadership positions and ensuring women’s voices and their concerns are always heard within the highest levels of government.

In Congress, Mimi fights for the rights of women and men, including and especially those who are survivors of abuses, helping to pave a path forward that includes justice and opportunity. She has been at the forefront of legislation aimed at revising workplace flexibility regulations and has been tireless in her legislative efforts to give women and families more flexibility and choices.

Mimi is a champion for job creation, lower taxes, less intrusive government, and greater fiscal responsibility. Her leadership is making an impact now more than ever – she serves as one of the highest-ranking women in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Mimi’s name will be on the ballot in California’s 45th Congressional District as she runs for reelection.

Achievements

Mimi has fought on behalf of the women in her district, and around the country, who are survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault. She introduced the Survivors’ Bill of Rights Act of 2016, a historic piece of legislation that focused on the rights of survivors of sexual assault. The bill confirmed the rights of survivors to be treated with dignity and respect by local authorities, and strengthened the collection and preservation of evidence from the assault. With Mimi’s hard work and focus, the bill passed unanimously in the House and Senate – and was signed into law in 2016.

Mimi also played a critical role in anti-sex trafficking legislation signed into law earlier this year. The law allows websites which knowingly help or promote sex trafficking to be prosecuted – and Mimi ensured that victims of sex trafficking would be able to sue those websites in civil court.

Mimi is dedicated to reducing the heavy tax burden that falls on her California district. She has supported efforts to reduce the federal tax rate, including voting for the tax reform bill and fought vehemently against raising the federal gas tax. Mimi uses her position to fight against state and local tax hikes however she can. As California debates rolling back its gas tax increase on the state level, Mimi is fighting hard to ensure that families in her district can fill up without paying even more at the pump.
