WASHINGTON – Today RightNOW Women PAC (RNWP) announced its full support behind Maryland State House Delegate, Kathy Szeliga for U.S. Senate and Lori Bartley (TX-18), Rep. Jackie Walorski (IN-2), and Rep. Susan Brooks (IN-5) for Congress. In addition, RightNOW Women PAC reinforces its efforts in backing Sen. Kelly Ayotte (NH), Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY-21), and Rep. Barbara Comstock (VA-10), reigniting the call to support our women leaders in Congress and urging young voters to support their reelection campaigns.
“Kathy Szeliga and Lori Bartley are two excellent candidates that will bring conservative values and a much needed voice to Congress,” said RightNOW Women spokesperson Walter Torres. “Both Kathy Szeliga and Lori Bartley are rising stars within the Republican party and have shown leadership throughout their entire careers - both are ready to get to work and fight for their constituents on day one. They will bring energy and fresh new ideas that will help create jobs, spur the economy, and reignite the American dream for tomorrow’s leaders.“
"I am so grateful to have the endorsement of RightNOW Women PAC,” said Maryland State House Delegate, Kathy Szeliga. “The people of Maryland sent a very clear message when they elected Larry Hogan as their governor a year and a half ago - and it’s paying off. I have been working side by side with Governor Hogan in Annapolis to cut fees and tolls, repeal the Rain Tax, and get our spending under control. And now I want to bring those same pro-business, common sense reforms to Washington with the help of great groups like RightNOW Women PAC and with the support of the people of Maryland."
RightNOW Women PAC also backs Representative Jackie Walorski (IN-2) and Representative Susan Brooks (IN-5) in their House reelection campaigns. “When Rep. Walorski and Rep. Brooks ran for office in 2012, both pledged to listen to the citizens of Indiana and voice their concerns in Washington. To this day, not only have they upheld that pledge, but they have also stood by RNWP’s mission and continue to engage with young women aspiring to pursue political careers,” said RightNOW Women PAC spokesperson Walter Torres. “As the Indiana primary grows near, we strongly urge all who stand with RNWP’s mission to support these two candidates on May 3rd and in the general.”
RightNOW Women will also be reinforcing their support for RNWP champions Senator Kelly Ayotte (NH), Representative Elise Stefanik (NY-21), and Representative Barbara Comstock (VA-10) in their reelection campaigns. RNWP has proudly supported Sen. Ayotte throughout her entire tenure in Washington and has endorsed Rep. Stefanik and Rep. Comstock in every race since they’ve pursued federal office. In order to further advance RightNOW Women’s vision, it is crucial that we help bring these great leaders back to Washington.
