Michelle Steel endorsed on Winning for Women’s initial candidate list

Winning for Women, a Washington D.C. nonprofit working to grow female, right-of-center leadership in Washington, announced their first round of endorsements for the 2020 election. Along with Republican women incumbents, Winning for Women announced their endorsement of 13 new candidates, 11 of whom are seeking to flip Democratic seats in 2020.

Michelle Steel’s recognition from Winning for Women comes on the heels of an impressive few months for the campaign. With strong Q3 fundraising numbers and key endorsements from local and national leaders, the first-time congressional candidate is gaining national recognition in her fight to unseat Harley Rouda.

“It is truly an honor to be endorsed by Winning for Women. They are on the frontlines, working hard to get qualified female Republican candidates elected all across the country and their endorsement helps us continue to build momentum in Orange County. Our campaign is just getting started and I’m excited to fight alongside these impressive women to retake the House in 2020,” stated Michelle Steel, Vice-Chair of the Orange County Board of Supervisors.

“This election is about defining the kind of country we want America to be, and our endorsed candidates will go to Washington to fight against extreme liberal policies like socialism, a government takeover of our healthcare system and the Green New Deal,” stated Winning for Women Executive Director Rebecca Schuller in the press announcement.

Winning for Women was founded in 2016 and works with its federal PAC to elect women that support economic freedom and understand the importance of strong national security. The organization and its PAC are committed to building an infrastructure that elevates and backs free-market conservative women running for Congress.

Along with the endorsement from Winning for Women, Steel was also honored on Elise Stefanik’s “Rising Star” List through Elevate PAC and named an “On the Radar” candidate in the National Republican Congressional Committee’s Young Guns program.

  1. Too bad she’s a crony of corrupt Trump who could actually careless about the real concerns true residents have (Steele lives in Palo Verdes) and too bad she does nothing to create any positive step forward for anyone or thing other than herself. She is a do-nothing rich tax dodger who is completely out of touch with her constituents. Too bad she calls cuckoo, Russia-stooge, Dana Rohrabacher, her friend and peer. One needs to fathom how any credible organization would endorse her for anything other than the entirely partisan-driven push to lower taxes on the rich with zero effort to create any change beyond this. More GOP corruption at every level of politics. VOTE HER OUT.

    1. Dear Fed-up Constituent,

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze, and taking the time to comment.

      We approved publishing your comment although it skates over the line in personal attacks, and is misleading on a number of assertions, which are made with no corroboration.

      First, my information is that Michelle Steel and her family live in Surfside, not Palos Verdes.

      Second, you give no proof at all that she or any member of her family is a “tax dodger,” that is, uses illegal means to avoid paying taxes. I myself use legal means to avoid paying excessive sales tax, for instance, by not buying taxable items in Long Beach, which enjoys a 10.5% sales tax. That does not make me a tax dodger. That makes me mad at tax enthusiasts in Sacramento — and Washington, D.C.

      Third, being friendly with Dana Rohrabacher is not grounds for barring someone from public service.

      Fourth, Ms. Steel is currently serving on the Orange County Board of Supervisors, but is running to represent the 48th District. Freshman Congressman Harley Rouda, who ousted Dana Rohrabacher in 2018, currently represents the 48th District. So “voting her out” cannot apply to her running for Congress, as she is not yet in office as a Congressional representative.

      Tarring Ms. Steel as a crony of President Trump is painting in awfully broad strokes. She is a member of the Republican Party, but her political experience is local to Southern California, hardly the stomping grounds of Mr. Trump.

      Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze.
