Chances are, if you’re involved in politics, you can name off a few strong conservative women. Nikki Haley, Rep. Elise Stefanik, Rep. Liz Cheney, Sen. McSally, and Ronna McDaniel are just a few of the women that immediately come to mind. These women are regularly in the news, fighting for conservative values in Washington D.C. and beyond.
There are also conservative women who are not always on national news, but they still fight for our values in their communities. They are small business owners, local public officials, candidates for higher office, and above all, women who want to make their towns, states, and country a better place to live and work. This list is not exhaustive, but they are women who are set to break out onto the national stage in 2020.
Zegers has been featured a few times on FFL, but 2020 is set to be her breakout year. In 2019, she created Young Americans Against Socialism, an organization dedicated to fighting the wave of socialism among millenials and Gen Z. She has already started to make waves in the digital sphere through their interviews with people who have escaped communism and in the physical sphere through her speaking engagements.
Randi Reed is a candidate for Nevada’s 4th Congressional District. She is a small business owner and has spent over two decades in Nevada. In Congress, she wants to fight over-regulation and tax hikes, tackle healthcare reform, and stop the rising tide of anti-Semitism. She has a crowded primary, but the NRCC has targeted the district for 2020 and looking to flip the seat red.
The Conservative Squad (Jessica Taylor, Michelle Fischbach, Nancy Mace, Beth Van Duyne)
During her campaign announcement in October, Jessica Taylor stated that she wanted to create a “Conservative Squad” to counteract the Squad on Capitol Hill, comprised of freshman Democrat Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14), Rashida Tlaib (MI-13), Ilhan Omar (MN-05), and Ayanna Pressley (MA-07). In December, the Conservative Squad promised by Taylor came to fruition in the form of four conservative women running for office in four different states: AL-07 candidate Jessica Taylor, MN-07 candidate Michelle Fischbach, SC-01 candidate Nancy Mace, and TX-24 candidate Beth Van Duyne. The women have been endorsed by various conservative women’s groups and are either looking to claim an open seat or flip blue seats in red districts.
