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 Susan Wright for Texas’ 6th Congressional District.


A dedicated public servant, SusanWright is ready to serve the 6th Congressional District of Texas.Susan is the widow of the late Honorable Ron Wright. A lifelong Republican, she is proud to have stood alongside Ron as he served the constituents of the 6th district and is running to preserve her husband’s commitment to bring conservative values to Washington.

Susan understands the shared conservative beliefs of the 6th district. Basic freedoms like the right to bear arms, the right to worship, and the right to raise a family are under attack across Texas. Fighting for these freedoms in the community whereSusan and Ron made their home is nothing new to Susan.

“Maggie’s List exists to support strong conservative female leaders which is why we are proud to endorse Susan Wright for Texas’ 6th district. As a widow myself,I can really appreciate the grit, grace and resilience Susan has shown by stepping up to run for Congress in the face of an overwhelming tragedy. Susan will be a fierce advocate for the conservative values we share, and she’ll be a great addition to the historic class of conservative women that are serving in the 117th Congress”, states Texas State Chair, Lisa Fortson.


Susan made the decision to dedicate her life to public service through serving her neighbors in Tarrant County. Susan has over three decades of experience — serving on countless boards and commissions like theArlington Transportation Advisory Committee and Ft. Worth Community DevelopmentCouncil and Tarrant County Crime Commission; serving as district director to two State Representatives; serving as an elections judge and precinct chair and SREC committeewoman and so many other positions — and is ready to serve on day one.


Through her work, Susan has teamed up with concerned taxpayers, homeowners, and citizen advocates on priorities like strengthening education, cutting property taxes, securing our border, and improving public services. Susan believes tax reform is essential to save hard-working Texans money and keep big government out of families pockets. She will continue her husband’s legacy by supporting in-state jobs and economic growth, increased border and immigration security, and a strong national defense.


“I’m truly honored to earn the support of the conservative women leaders at Maggie’s List. They are on the frontlines, working hard to get quality female conservative candidates elected all across the country, and I’m excited to fight alongside this incredible organization to retake the House in the 2022 cycle” states Susan Wright, candidate endorsed by Maggie’s List.
