Maggie's List Endorses Tamika Hamilton for California's 3rd District


A veteran that’s ready to take on the D.C. elite


Washington, D.C. — Maggie’s List, a federal political action committee (PAC) dedicated to electing fiscally conservative women to federal office and statewide executive office, is proud to announce the endorsement of Tamika Hamilton for California’s 3rd Congressional district.


Hamilton embodies the traits of a candidate supported by Maggie’s List. Her impressive resume includes 14 years of active duty in the Air Force, having been stationed at five different bases and two deployments in the Middle East as part ofOperation Enduring Freedom. During her military career, Hamilton was awarded several prestigious medals, including the Air Force Achievement Medal, JointService Accommodation Medal, Air Force Meritorious Unit Award and Air ForceGood Conduct Medal.

“It’s a pleasure to have the support of such a reputable organization such as Maggie’sList,” states Tamika Hamilton, Republican candidate for California’s third Congressional district. “Very few organizations have done more to support conservative women and put conservative ideas into action. It’s such an honor to have their endorsement.”


This latest endorsement from Maggie’s List comes on the heels of the Lake County RepublicanParty’s official endorsement of Tamika Hamilton for Congress last week and adds to the growing momentum and enthusiasm for Tamika’s candidacy nationally.


Tamika and her husband Ray Hamilton live in Dixon, California with their four children Kaedyn, Gabriella, Ryan andBeau. Ray is a US Navy veteran and now serves in the community as a police officer. Both Ray and Tamika are active in their local church and volunteer in their community. Tamika’s experience with homeless veterans inspired her to run for Congress.


“Just from talking to Tamika, you can tell she is a strong woman of faith who loves and has a deep dedication to her country, family and local community,” statesJeanne Kysar-Carey, Maggie’s List State Co-Chair. “Tamika is ready to provide solutions to our ongoing homelessness crisis and will approach issues such as immigration, housing affordability and healthcare with the thoughtful and common sense approach that has defined her excellent military career.”
