Election season is heating up, and our favorite GOP women are on fire this week. Here’s this week’s roundup of five trailblazing moments from Republican women.
Senator Joni Ernst dominates in debate against Democratic challenger
Senator Ernst stood tall against her Senate opponent in a debate last week. With a fair amount of class and sass, Ernst pointed out her opponent’s poor record on business leadership and her failed previous campaigns, underscoring that Greenfield is ill-fit for the position. In a tight race, Ernst’s performance reminded her constituents that she’s a fighter.
Congresswoman Elise Stefanik reelection campaign raises more than $3 million since July
Elise Stefanik (NY-21) outraised her opponent 3-to-1 from July–September, bringing in more than $3 million to her Democratic challenger Tedra Cobb’s $1.157 million. Stefanik is running for her fourth term in Congress, and she previously beat Cobb in 2018. As the election hits its peak, Stefanik’s fundraising success couldn’t be better timed!

As Senator Ernst so eloquently said, “this is what a mom can do.”
