PRESS CONFERENCE - AUGUST 17, 2 P.M., 3 WEST 51ST ST., NY, NY MAGGIE’S LIST ENDORSES WENDY LONG FOR U.S. SENATE (NY)
Maggie’s List will formally endorse Wendy Long, Candidate for U.S. Senate (NY), on Wednesday, August 17, at 2 p.m. at 3 West 51st Street in Manhattan. Representatives of Maggie’s List will be joined by former Congresswoman Nan Hayworth (NY), who is an active supporter of Maggie’s List and women running for office. At 53%, women represent the majority of voters. Yet, women continue to be significantly underrepresented in Congress. Maggie’s List was founded in 2010 to increase the number of conservative women elected to the U.S. House and Senate through formal endorsement and financial assistance. Maggie’s List is named after Margaret Chase Smith (ME) who was the first women to be elected to both houses of Congress. Media frequently mentions Emily’s list while ignoring Republican PACS including Maggie’s List. Since 2010, Maggie’s List has endorsed many successful women running the first time for Federal office including Senators Ayotte, Capito, Ernst, and Fischer, and Congresswomen Brooks, Hayworth, Love, McSally, Noem, and Walters. Wendy joins a growing list of great conservative women running across the country whom have been been endorsed by Maggie’s List (maggieslist.org) in the 2016.

Winter at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
