W4W PAC endorses nine freshmen incumbent Congresswomen sitting in competitive seats.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Winning For Women PAC (W4W PAC), the connected PAC of Winning For Women, today announced its initial endorsements of nine freshmen incumbent Congresswomen for the 2022 cycle.
“The road to the majority runs through the districts of these Congresswomen. Winning For Women PAC is proud to endorse nine strong, conservative women who are already making an impact in their districts and in Washington,” said Micah Yousefi, Political Director for Winning For Women PAC. “The 2022 midterm elections are an opportunity to flip the House of Representatives and put a check on the Biden presidency. With smart investments and a grassroots network of support, we can make this cycle another record year for Republican women.”
The initial round of endorsements includes nine freshman House women, all of whom sit in competitive seats:
California-39: Young Kim
California-48: Michelle Steel
Florida-27: Maria Elvira Salazar
Iowa-01: Ashley Hinson
Iowa-02: Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks
New York-11: Nicole Malliotakis
Oklahoma-05: Stephanie Bice
South Carolina-01: Nancy Mace
Texas-24: Beth Van Duyne
W4W PAC will max out to the campaigns of each of these endorsed candidates. It bases its endorsements on a number of metrics, including: significant fundraising numbers proportionate to the candidate’s district; an established campaign team; and a viable path to success through the primary and general elections.
“After running a small business, having a career, raising a family and now serving the community I’ve called home for decades in Congress, I believe the American dream is alive and real, and that we need more women’s voices at the table to move our country forward,” said Kim, one of the first Korean American women to serve in Congress. “Winning For Women has encouraged me and so many other conservative women to run for office and advance free market principles since day one, and I’m grateful to have their endorsement.”
“I’m honored to have the continued support of Winning For Women,” said Steel. “They’re on the frontlines to elect more Republican women candidates and I’m proud to work together with them to take back the House in 2022.”
“As the daughter of Cuban refugees, fighting for my South Florida community in the most diverse Congress is truly the honor of a lifetime,” said Salazar. “Thank you so much to Winning For Women for your continued support. I’ll always work to strengthen our economy and make sure socialism never comes to our country, so that America can remain exceptional.”
“I am honored to have Winning For Women endorse my re-election campaign,” said Hinson. “Winning For Women helped fuel my first run and their support continues to be invaluable as I continue working to push back against Speaker Pelosi’s destructive agenda and champion conservative policies that will move Iowa and our country forward. Together, we will build upon last cycle’s historic success and add even more strong conservative women to a Republican House majority in 2022!”
“Knowing that the Democrats have made Iowa’s Second Congressional District their biggest target next year, I couldn’t be happier to have Winning For Women in my corner,” said Miller-Meeks. “Its commitment to common sense solutions that benefit all Americans and its efforts to help elect conservative women are needed now more than ever as the cancel culture crowd seeks to drown out voices of reason. At a time when Congress is so out of touch with Americans’ everyday concerns, Winning For Women will be an essential ally in the fight to preserve our freedoms and improve our quality of life in the 2022 election cycle and beyond.”
“I’m honored to once again be endorsed by Winning For Women, an organization that plays a critical role in supporting Republican women during their campaigns,” said Malliotakis. “As the only Republican representing New York City in the U.S. House, I’ll continue to push back on far-left policies proposed by my Democrat colleagues at both the local and national levels. I will continue to fight for commonsense solutions that preserve our freedoms and create greater economic opportunity for all Americans. I look forward to working with organizations like W4W to ensure our party builds on last cycle’s record-breaking year of electing strong, driven, and diverse Republican women to higher office.”
“Returning the House to conservatives is crucial to bringing common sense, fiscally responsible policies back to Congress,” said Bice. “Organizations like Winning For Women play a critical role in supporting Republican women, and the need will be even greater for the 2022 midterm elections as we work to return balance to the House.”
“Republican women won big in 2020. To take back the House in 2022, we must continue to identify and support diverse candidates,” saidMace.“Winning For Women just gets it. I’m grateful for their support and enthusiastic endorsement in my Republican primary. It’s not just Democrat women breaking glass ceilings. Republican women are here to stay to rein in Washington’s spending problem and be a voice for working families. It’s time to put Nancy Pelosi in the minority.”
“I am honored to, once again, earn the endorsement of Winning For Women,” said Van Duyne. “In order to remove Nancy Pelosi from power, strong conservative leaders need the continuing support of organizations like Winning For Women, who played a critical role in my 2020 election to the 24th Congressional District of Texas. I look forward to working with them, not only in our election but in elections across the country, so we can take back the House of Representatives.”
W4W PAC is proud to join other great PACs – like EPAC and View PAC – in providing hard-dollar support to help fuel the campaigns of top women candidates. Through its nationwide network, more than 800k W4W members will also provide small-dollar and grassroots support. WFW Action Fund (WFW AF), the first Republican Super PAC dedicated solely to electing women, provides critical, independent, early support that is a key factor in winning elections.
