Washington, D.C. - Maggie’s List, a federal political action committee (PAC), today announces the organization’s endorsement of Jane Timken for United States Senate representing Ohio. Timken, a mother of two who previously served as Ohio Republican Party Chairwoman, announced her campaign earlier this year to replace current U.S. Senator Rob Portman. Timken is the first U.S. Senate candidate to be endorsed by Maggie’s List for the 2022 election cycle.
“Maggie’s List is proud to endorse Jane Timken in her race to be Ohio’s next United States Senator. Jane will fight against the Biden administration’s radical tax and spend agenda on behalf of families working hard to provide a better future for the next generation. Jane is a proven leader who will work tirelessly to advance the conservative principles that Maggie’s List was founded upon, and we strongly support her campaign,” stated Sandra B. Mortham, Chairman of Maggie’s List and former Florida Secretary of State.
“I am proud to be the first female Chair of the Ohio Republican Party, and if elected, would be even prouder to be the first female Senator from Ohio. I know I stand on the shoulders of countless, pioneering women who came before me, and I hope to serve as a trailblazer for future Conservative women in Ohio. Maggie's List serves as an important launching pad and force for conservative women and I am honored to have their support and endorsement,” said Jane Timken, candidate for U.S. Senate
Since the election of President Trump in 2016, Maggie’s List has seen a rise in the number of conservative women running for office. In light of the #MeToo movement, women’s activism is more important than ever.
According to the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP), women hold 26.7%, of the 535 seats in the 117th Congress, a number that is significantly lower than the average percentage of eligible women who regularly vote in elections, which was 59.3% in 2016. Maggie’s List mission is to equalize those numbers and empower women to take a stand and run for what they believe in.
