Maggie’s List Proudly Endorses Amata Radewagen for U.S. Congress

The First Ever Endorsement of an American Samoa Representative

(Washington, DC) – 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 current Congresswoman Amata Radewagen, representing American Samoa.


Amata Radewagen is the definition of perseverance. Congresswoman Radewagen ran for Congress ten times before being elected in 2014. She has since then dedicated her time in Congress to providing a voice for American Samoans in Washington.


“Congresswoman Radewagen is a proven leader who embodies the American Samoan spirit,” states Sandra B. Mortham, Chairman of Maggie’s List and former elected Florida Secretary of State. “Her service in Congress, coupled with her relentless leadership and desire to work on issues that directly impact citizens and businesses in American Samoa, make her the right choice. We know she is the right candidate to serve and represent American Samoa because she respects the need for increased personal responsibility, fiscal conservatism, and a strong national security.”

Maggie’s List endorsed candidate and Congresswoman Amata Radewagen states, "I am honored and humbled to be the first American Samoan endorsed by Maggie’s List. This important endorsement shows the national attention and interest in our campaign. I am grateful for the support of this organization who constantly encourages and supports conservative women running for office. I am excited and am looking forward to the rest of this campaign!”

With a primary win rate of 82% and a general election win rate of 66% in 2016, Maggie’s List has a track record of picking winners thanks to our grassroots national network led by state chairs with keen political insight and direct knowledge of the political landscape conservative women candidates face.
