WFW AF Congratulates Laurie Buckhout on Primary Victory in NC-01

March 5, 2024

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Winning For Women Action Fund (WFW AF) released the following statement congratulating Laurie Buckhout on her primary victory in North Carolina’s 1st Congressional District.

“Congratulations to Laurie Buckhout on her primary victory,” said WFW AF Executive Director Danielle Barrow. “As a decorated Army colonel and successful entrepreneur, she would be an exceptional representative for North Carolina’s 1st district. Laurie is the candidate who is best positioned to defeat Rep. Don Davis and flip this seat back to the Republican column, and we are proud to stand behind her.”

Support for Buckhout this cycle includes:

  • Following a January 2024 endorsement of Buckhout, WFW PAC maxed out to her campaign.

  • WFW AF leadership has already planned multiple events across the country to raise hard dollars for Buckhout.


The Winning For Women (WFW) entities were proud to provide women candidates with unprecedented resources in the 2022 cycle. Through our SuperPAC – the first dedicated solely to electing Republican women, 501(c)(4) and connected PAC, and other hard dollar efforts, we raised over $17 million to support right-of-center women. WFW conducted targeted issue advocacy campaigns, briefings with partner organizations, DC and in-district press events, and mentorship programs. Our political arm hosted national fundraisers that raised nearly $4 million in hard dollars, and WFW AF spent over $8 million in independent expenditure campaigns to advance women through contested races.

This cycle, WFW PAC has already backed over a dozen House candidates and incumbents running for re-election. WFW AF’s leadership has already raised over $1 million in hard dollars for WFW PAC’s endorsed candidates, and has scheduled multiple fundraisers throughout the country to ensure they have the resources needed to win.
