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.
