Happy Friday everyone! This week was a big one for both conservative women and for Future Female Leaders. FFL welcomed nineteen (!!!) new Cabinet Members; make sure to give them a follow! Now back to our regularly scheduled programming — here are seven ways that conservative women killed this week.

Mississippi elects first female AG – and she’s a Republican

Tuesday’s elections provided highs and lows for each party, but one of the wins for our side came out of Mississippi. Lynn Fitch was elected as the first female Attorney General in Mississippi’s history with nearly 60% of the vote. She previously spent eight years as the state treasurer. Her priorities include standing up for law enforcement, prosecuting fraud and abuse, defending our Constitutional rights, and fighting the opioid crisis. 

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem appears on Fox News

Neil Cavuto hosted Governor Kristi Noem (R-SD) on Fox News earlier this week. During the segment, they covered key issues such as finalizing trade agreements to stabilize the agriculture industry, the importance of bringing the USMCA to a vote, and female representation in government. This clip highlights one of the best quotes of the segment: “Women bring a different perspective to every single issue and that’s why it’s important that we’re weighing in policies.”

NRCC Executive Director Parker Poling featured on Roll Call

Being the fourth woman ever to hold the office of Executive Director within the National Republican Congressional Committee hasn’t scared Parker Poling one bit. On the contrary, the NRCC has been incredibly aggressive in its quest to win back the House in 2020. In a profile by Roll Call this week, Poling discussed the nuances of politics and being involved in campaign work after spending twelve years on the Hill. She even gives a shout-out to CWW Frequent Flyer Representative Elise Stefanik (R-NY) since they are both from upstate New York.

Rep. González-Colón (R-PR) secures funding to fight drug use

A new entry to CWW, Representative Jenniffer González-Colón announced this week that she has secured $9.7 million in funding from the Department of Health and Human Services and the Office of National Drug Control Policy for Puerto Rico. This money will be used to fight youth drug use on the island. Some of the funding has also been earmarked for women and childrens’ health services and HIV/AIDs treatment.

Sens. Ernst and Capito team up to question Department of Veterans’ Affairs

After hearing reports of sexual assaults occurring in VA hospitals, Senators Joni Ernst (R-IA) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) penned a letter to VA Secretary Robert Wilke with a list of questions. The questions mostly have to deal with the VA’s policies on preventing and reporting sexual assault, how they’ve implemented suggestions made by the Government Accountability Office, and statistics on employees with sexual assault convictions. They’ve requested a reply by Thursday, November 14th, so we will see if the office replies.

Morgan Zegers, founder of Young Americans Against Socialism, participated in panel on dangers of socialism

Since running for office last year (sadly, unsuccessfully), Morgan Zegers has been busy. She’s been hitting the road, documenting stories, and educating young people about the truths of socialism with her new organization Young Americans Against Socialism (YAAS). Her participation on a panel hosted by the Binghamton College Republicans was covered by the school newspaper Pipe Dream. In a statement to the paper, Zegers hinted at the type of content we’ll be seeing from YAAS in 2020 — I cannot wait for the personal stories that we’ve seen snippets of over the last couple of months!

Bonus nod: Megyn Kelly creates Instagram to tease an interview with ABC whistleblower

It feels like a new development in the story of Jeffery Epstein’s underground life comes out every single day, but this is a big one. Two days ago, Project Veritas uploaded leaked hot mic footage of ABC’s Amy Robach complaining about how she had the Epstein story three years ago but the story was “spiked” by higher-ups. The footage was filmed in late August.

Within the last 24 hours, journalist Yashar Ali tweeted that, according to two insiders, the person who leaked the footage had since moved to CBS but was fired after ABC executives reached out to CBS executives to conduct an investigation. This morning, Megyn Kelly announced her new Instagram page by teasing an interview with the whistleblower. At the time of press, the interview drop time is unknown, but we’ll be patiently waiting to see the next development in this saga.
