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 former New Mexico State Representative Janice Arnold-Jones for New Mexico’s 1st Congressional district.

Janice Arnold-Jones is a proven conservative and leader. Janice served the citizens of New Mexico as a four term state representative. During her time in the state legislature, Janice was on several committees and commissions such as the House Taxation & Revenue Committee and the House Voters & Elections Committee. Janice Arnold-Jones knows the representation New Mexico’s 1st Congressional district needs in Washington and is ready for that role.

“Now that an independent poll has been released and shows a heated race, we as well as the Democrats know that I can win. Being endorsed by Maggie’s List, a group that gives conservative women a strong voice, enables us to reach far beyond the borders of New Mexico for help in winning this very close race,” states Maggie’s List endorsed Candidate, Janice Arnold-Jones.

“We are so pleased to get Maggie's List endorsement for Janice. This shows the voters that we have confidence in Janice and her ability to represent the state in Congress with her experience and expertise. We know first-hand that Janice is the right individual who will uphold the Maggie’s List values of fiscal conservatism, more personal responsibility, less government and a stronger national security while in Washington,” states Maggie’s List New Mexico State Chair, Elaine Miller.

Maggie’s List is a Federal Political Action Committee created to raise awareness and funds to increase the number of fiscally conservative women elected to federal public office. Maggie’s List was founded in 2010 by a group of women with a fiscally conservative economic vision and a desire to address the underrepresentation of women in Congress. Maggie’s List supports women candidates who stand for fiscal conservatism, less government, more personal responsibility, and strong national security. 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.
