RightNOW Women PAC Hosts Second Major Event, Launches Candidate Interview Series

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

April 29, 2014

Media Contact: Marcie Kinzel  202-320-7275 

WASHINGTON - RightNOW Woman PAC is hosting their second major fundraising event this evening, where organizers will announce the launch of a candidate interview series that will provide a distinctive way to learn more about RightNOW Women PAC’s endorsed candidates.

Tonight’s event, hosted at DLA Piper, features a “Spring Derby” theme. Guests are being encouraged to “pony up,” wear hats, sip mint juleps, play tailgate toss games and place “bets” on fundraising teams. Winners will receive roses at the event.

“There are so many fundraisers for Washingtonians to choose from, so we’re challenging ourselves to keep our events fresh, fun and ultimately feature moments that will appeal to all generations of both men and women,” said RightNOW Women PAC Advisor Marlene Colucci. “If you’re a younger supporter, you can come to this event for just $25 - this is our way of making sure that younger activists can get involved in electing more Republican women to Congress.”

The launch of the the PAC’s candidate interview series will coincide with tonights’ event, with the first interview to be posted on the RightNOW Women PAC website at 6:30 p.m. The Q & A with Tricia Pridemore (running for GA-11) will feature Tricia’s views on topics including the biggest challenges facing young women in America today, what it means to be a Republican woman, and Tricia’s top beauty tip for a long day on the campaign trail. Readers might be surprised to find out what Tricia thinks is an “ideal Friday night” and by who some of her role models are.

“The interviews were inspired by those featuring celebrities in women’s magazines,” explained RightNOW Women PAC Founder Brittany Thune Lindberg. “This approach will give supporters and voters a chance to get to know these candidates on a more human level, and we think it’s important for younger women, in particular, to get to know these leaders as women, not just as politicians.”

Interviews will be promoted exclusively through social media and found only on the RightNOW Women PAC website.

Nashua Telegraph: More women in public office would be better for country

Nashua Telegraph 
Alyson Higgins 
February 16, 2014 

After witnessing the frustrating gridlock in Congress in 2013, many Americans are wondering what 2014 will bring. Election season is upon us and electing new blood to Congress will help this country get back on track. Electing women in particular, will change the way Congress operates and will help Congress be more representative of the U.S. population.

Growing up in southern New Hampshire, I did not fully understand the powerful voice our state has in United States politics. It wasn’t until my junior year at Salem High School, when I had the chance to job-shadow then-Attorney General Kelly Ayotte, that I really became interested in public service. Sen. Ayotte inspired me to think not just about “what I wanted to be when I grew up,” but rather, “what problem I want to solve.” As I’ve started my career in the political world, I have realized first and foremost that actions speak louder than words. This was exemplified when the women of the Senate took the necessary steps to end the government shutdown this past October.
