Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone! As we round out 2019, let’s take a look at the three Republican women who made a difference this week.

Senator Martha McSally volunteers with the Salvation Army on Christmas

Senator McSally spread the Christmas spirit to those in need. Complete with her Santa hat, McSally spent time volunteering at the Tuscon Convention Center on Christmas Day, providing a holiday meal for those who did not have one. We love to see our favorite officials spreading holiday cheer!

Former United States Marine Aliscia Andrews announces run to unseat Democratic Congresswoman in Virginia

The Daily Wire reported that Aliscia Andrews, a former United States Marine, would run against freshman congresswoman, Jennifer Wexton. Her election would make history; Andrews would become the first female Marine elected to Congress. She currently works in the Department of Homeland Security and is well-versed in national security matters, both from her military experience and her education at Georgetown, where she earned her MBA and Certificate in Cybersecurity Strategy Management. We’ll be keeping an eye on Andrews in the coming weeks and months, and we wish her luck in her campaign!

Bipartisan bill focusing on STEM education from Senator Shelley Moore Capito is signed into law

The Building Blocks of STEM Act was signed into law on Christmas Eve. This bill, introduced by Capito and her Democratic counterpart, Jacky Rosen, will encourage and empower the next generation to pursue STEM careers. It will provide funding for programs and grants that emphasize STEM skills. Capito has made it a priority to empower young women to set and achieve their goals; this is just one more way that Capito is investing in the next generation of women.
