January 30, 2024

“Flipping these seats is critical to holding and expanding our majority”

WASHINGTON, DC – Winning For Women PAC (WFW PAC) today announced its next round of endorsements for the 2024 election cycle. These women are all running in battleground districts currently held by Democrats, and flipping them will be key to holding and expanding the House Republican majority. The candidates are: Nancy Dahlstrom (AK-AL), Laurie Buckhout (NC-01)Alison Esposito (NY-18), and Leslie Lewallen (WA-03). The House Democratic campaign arm has included all four districts on their list of most endangered incumbents.

With these endorsements, WFW PAC will max out to each candidate and has already scheduled multiple fundraisers throughout the country to ensure they have the resources needed to win. In 2023, Winning For Women Action Fund (WFW AF) leadership and a large host committee raised over $800,000 for WFW PAC’s initial group of endorsed candidates at a single event. WFW AF recently invested six-figures in mail, texting, and digital to support Mazi Pilip in the NY-03 special election. Last cycle, WFW and related entities raised $17 million to support its endorsed candidates, including directing nearly $4 million in hard dollars to their campaigns.

“These women are rising stars who will add to the record number of Republican women in the House of Representatives. With a razor-thin majority in the House, flipping these seats is critical to holding and expanding our majority,” said Danielle Barrow, Executive Director of WFW PAC. “We are excited to help ensure they have the resources they need as they work to secure their primary and general election victories.”

“Throughout my career, I have always made the choice to step up, rather than back down, when there was a tough fight. Now, I’m running to represent Alaska in Congress and push back against Biden’s agenda that has crushed our state,” stated Lt. Governor Nancy Dahlstrom, candidate for Alaska’s At-Large Congressional District. “I am proud and honored to have the support of Winning For Women PAC. Their commitment to electing strong, conservative women across the country is critical and I look forward to working with them to win Alaska and keep the House majority in 2024.”

Winning For Women PAC supports Conservative women candidates and I am honored they’ve chosen me as the best Conservative fighter for the working families of North Carolina’s first Congressional District,” said Laurie Buckhout, candidate for North Carolina’s first Congressional District. “Conservative women know we have to shut down Joe Biden’s open border policies on our Southern border and, working together, we can help lead the Republican effort to solve this crisis.”

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Winning For Women PAC. They have been at the forefront of helping more Republican women get elected to Congress, and I am humbled to be included in that group, said Alison Esposito, candidate for New York’s 18th Congressional District. I know with their support, I will be able to further amplify my message to bring common sense back to Washington and to have a government that starts working for the American people again. Let’s do this!”

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Winning For Women PAC,” said Leslie Lewallen, candidate for Washington’s 3rd Congressional District. “I am a fifth generation Washingtonian, wife, and mother of four who got tired of sitting on the sidelines during COVID. I am forever grateful for Winning For Women’s encouragement and support to run for office and fight for the country I love.”
