I recently wrote how imperative it is to honor conservative and Republican women during Women’s History Month.
In a new video from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), five female Republican U.S. Senators share their thoughts on the occasion and how they enjoy bringing their perspectives to the chamber. Three of the five senators featured were the first women to be elected from their respective states.
The NRSC’s primary goal is strengthening the Republican Majority in the U.S. Senate.
The video features Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), and Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ).
Here are a few kernels from the video:
“Republicans have led the way in giving true opportunities to women to serve.” — Senator Collins
“I believe the Republican Party is the perfect place for women.” — Senator Moore Capito
“All you have to do is look around. We have many strong women, especially in the U.S. Senate, that are serving in the Republican Party.” — Senator Ernst
“It is pretty special to know that Mississippians were willing to go in and put confidence in a woman.” — Senator Hyde-Smith
“Given the opportunities that I’ve had, I’m just honored to be able to provide some inspiration to young girls and women.” — Senator McSally
Talk about girl power!
There are currently eight female Republican Senators, compared to 17 female Democrat Senators. Last year was a record-setting year for Republican women in the U.S. Senate.
There will certainly be more interest among both Republican and conservative women to run for the Senate in the coming years, since they don’t feel represented by the likes of Senators Harris, Gillibrand, or Feinstein.
The 2020 election cycle is expected to attract some interesting candidates for office—including some conservative Republican women.
The Resurgent will be on the lookout for principled ones.
