Herrell becomes 51st woman endorsed by group known for supporting fiscally conservative women
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 today that they have added New Mexico State Representative Yvette Herrell and her campaign to be the next Congresswoman for New Mexico’s 2nd District to their list of endorsed candidates for the 2018 cycle.
The 2018 field of endorsed candidates is based on extensive research, evaluation, and grassroots knowledge. Special attention is given to open seat and challenger candidates running in viable districts. Unlike political parties, Maggie’s List takes a stand in primary elections, when help is essential, and continues that support into the general election cycle.
“Maggie’s List is thrilled to endorse New Mexico State Representative Yvette Herrell. Yvette knows first-hand the representation New Mexico’s 2nd district needs in Washington,” states Maggie’s List National Chair and former elected Florida Secretary of State, Sandra Mortham. “Yvette understands that our country needs more fiscal conservatism, personal responsibility, a strong national security and more personal responsibility.”
“As a conservative woman who truly believes that fiscal responsibility, limited government, and a strong national defense is the cornerstone of our nation’s future success, I am honored to receive the support and the endorsement of Maggie’s List.,” Rep. Yvette Herrell said. “This organization represents a great deal to empowering conservative females to run for higher office. I will continue to tirelessly fight for conservative ideals and principals that are held by so many New Mexicans and Americans.”
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.
