Sen. Kelly Ayotte says a new Republican women’s political action committee is “Democrats’ worst nightmare.”
Surrounded in a room full of 400 people, primarily young women, Ayotte gave the keynote address at the launch party of RightNOW Women PAC on Tuesday night.
The new political action committee is the brainchild of former George W. Bush aide Marlene Colucci, formed to address what she sees as a dire disconnect between the Republican Party and female voters.
Rather than focusing their efforts on fundraising, Colucci and energetic young partner Brittany Thune, daughter of the senator, are after a “low-fund, high-involvement” movement that will mobilize female voters and encourage young women to consider running for office.
