Record-shattering numbers of GOP women are running for office under Trump: ‘Our voices are not being heard’
“These candidates see the extreme socialist agenda of the Democrat Party and are stepping up to the plate to do something about it.” Record numbers of Republican women are running for office in the Trump era because they “recognize that President Trump’s policies are working for them,”

The GOP is the big tent party.  Record numbers of women and minorities running for Congress and other offices.  The GOP is the party of the middle and working class, the small business person, and the family.  Preserving capitalism and prosperity and opposing big government socialism is what’s motivating the expansion of the GOP base.

  • The number of Republican women running for office is surging under President Donald Trump.

  • Two hundred women have filed for 2020 House races, a number that “shatters all previous records” according to the NRCC.

  • “We’re tired of politics as usual,” says North Carolina candidate Michele Nix. “Our voices are not being heard.”

Record-shattering numbers of Republican women are running for office under President Donald Trump, saying that they believe their voices are not being represented and that they must stand up to Democratic socialism.

The number of  Republican  women who have filed for 2020 “shatters all previous records,” National Republican Congressional Committee communications director Chris Pack told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Two hundred women, 164 minorities, and 214 veterans have filed to run as Republicans in 2020 House races – and Pack says they expect more to file in states where filing is still open.

“Chairman Tom Emmer has placed a strong emphasis on recruiting a diverse slate of candidates that reflects the Republican Party at the grassroots level,” Pack explained. “These candidates see the extreme socialist agenda of the Democrat Party and are stepping up to the plate to do something about it.”

Record numbers of Republican  women  are running for office in the Trump era because they “recognize that President Trump’s policies are working for them,” Trump campaign deputy press secretary Sarah Matthews told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Affordable healthcare, support for paid family leave, more jobs, and safer communities, those are all women’s issues and that’s why President Trump and Republican candidates across the country will win big with women in 2020,” she said.

Her words are echoed by the Republican women running for office.

Claire Chase, who is seeking the nomination for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District, says that Republican women are running for Congress this year because Americans are “sick and tired of Democrats hammering the president despite his pro-woman record.”

The New Mexico candidate adds that Trump has a long history of supporting women in his capacity as president, citing White House advisor Kellyanne Conway, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, former Administrator of the Small Business Administration Linda McMahon, and United States Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao.

“A hallmark of the Trump Presidency has been hiring and elevating Republican women to the highest levels of government,” she told the DCNF.

“I’m running to help President Trump take on the establishment, secure our southern border, and protect life. Thanks to President Trump, female unemployment is at a 50 year low, female wages are rising, and we saw the child tax credit double.”

Michelle Nix, who is campaigning for the House in North Carolina’s 1st Congressional District, says that Republican women are running to make their voices heard.

“We’re tired of politics as usual,” she says. “Our voices are not being heard.”

Nix faces a tough race against Democratic Congressman G.K. Butterfield for North Carolina’s District 1, a district that has been held by a Democrat since 1883 – more than 100 years.

But a  new analysis from the Washington Post  has the race at D+3, which would mean that if a strong candidate wins the primary and faces Butterfield in the general election, a Republican could potentially win the district.

Nix believes she’s the Republican to flip that seat. “I can relate to the people that are in the district, having the backstory that I do have,” she said. “I can relate really to the people and more to the people in the first district than Butterfield can.”

“I’m just like they are,” she adds. “An ordinary person trying to do extraordinary things.”

Nix grew up in a middle class family with strong military ties, a family that valued hard work and conservative principles. She struggled through hard times as a young mother with two children and was forced to live off government assistance for a period.

But Nix, determined to pull her family out of destitution, began working waiting tables and working odd jobs until she launched herself into a banking career.

Now she is married with five children and three grandchildren and running for Congress.

After former President Barack Obama’s 2008 election, Nix said she realized she did not like where the United States was headed. She joined a local tea party group in the area and then became involved with the local Republican party.

“The county I live in is very small and we have more Democrats than we do Republicans,” she said. “So when I showed up for a meeting, they actually drafted me and put me on as a member at large to help out with the county party itself.”

Nix went from serving as a member of the Republican county party to becoming secretary, then treasurer, then vice chairman, and eventually chairwoman of the Lenore County Republican Party. And since Lenore County sat in three different congressional districts at the time, Nix got involved with these other district parties as well.

“I was really covering all of Eastern North Carolina,” she said. As she became more involved in the politics of these districts, Nix said she realized the need for someone like her to step up to the plate. She began engaging with people across the state, attending events, creating a Facebook account to engage with voters, and discussing her thoughts on politics with everyone she met.

“I have a rule that’s called my three-foot rule,” she explained. “Anyone within three feet of me gets to hear why I’m a Republican and why I think we’re the better party.”

Nix finally decided that she “had a story to tell” and stepped out onto the campaign trail. She has since been endorsed by Amy Kremer, co-founder of Women for Trump PAC and chair of Women for America First, as well as North Carolina state Sen. Bob Steinburg.

“The only voices you’re hearing are ‘the Democrat squad,’” she said. “What about the Republican squad? What about us women? You know, who is actually representing us in Congress? We are conservatives. We believe in pro-life. We believe in our gun rights. We don’t believe in socialism. Who’s representing us up here in Washington?”

Republican women value their male counterparts, Nix says, but there are some issues that require women’s attention. And the women currently in Congress “do not represent me,” she warns.

The candidate explains that she was one of the first Trump supporters in the state of North Carolina. Trump spoke as the featured speaker at a dinner Nix attended in January 2015 in South Carolina at a tea party coalition meeting. Nix turned to her husband and said, “You know, if Donald Trump gets the nomination, he’s gonna win.”

“My husband said to me, ‘you’re crazy. He ain’t gonna win,’” Nix said. “I said, ‘I’m telling you, if he gets the nomination, he’s gonna win.’ He said, well, you know what, I’ll bet you a cup of coffee on it.’ I said, ‘you’re going to owe me a pop.’”

She met the future president at a December 2015 rally and “never looked back.”

“President Trump has no idea who I am, but he’s going to find out shortly,” she said with a laugh.

She promises to represent the “silent majority” who oppose socialism.

“Their voices are not being heard. They’re being drowned out by the Democrats and by the media, they’re pushing all this socialized medicine. They’re pushing government dependency from cradle to the grave,” she said.

“That’s not what America is about. And that’s not what we were founded upon. That is not the life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for anyone.”

Gop are on the way out.  This is a really interesting article about the upcoming changes, the millennials are about ready to take over as the largest demographic as the boomers die off.  The changes will be all over the place, but the republican party may never survive.  Especially after being complicit in Trump's corruption.

https://time.com/5770140/millennials-change-american-politics/

The conventional wisdom has long been that young people usually lean to the left and then become more conservative as they age, buy homes, build wealth and raise families. Winston Churchill once supposedly said, “If you’re not a liberal at 20, you have no heart; if you’re not a conservative at 40, you have no brain.” But the data tell a different story. Researchers have found that popular Presidents tend to attract young people to their party, while unpopular Presidents repel them. Those formative attitudes are persistent: if you’re disenchanted by a Republican President as a teenager, you’re disproportionately more likely to vote for Democrats well into your adult life. One Pew study of 2012 data found that those who turned 18 during the unpopular Republican Richard Nixon years were more likely to vote for Democrat Barack Obama, while those who turned 18 just a decade later, during the prosperous Ronald Reagan years, tended to vote for Obama’s GOP opponent in the 2012 presidential race, Mitt Romney.

=======================================

But Trump’s election in 2016 scrambled young Republicans’ efforts to appeal to a new generation. When Curbelo, once a rising star in the GOP, was ousted in the 2018 midterms, Trump mocked him as Carlos “Que-bella.” As Trumpism rose, many young conservatives began nursing serious doubts about their party, and some jumped ship altogether. From 2015 to 2017, roughly half of young Republicans defected from the GOP, according to Pew. Over 20% came back to the party by 2017, but almost a quarter left for good, Pew found. By 2018, only 17% of millennials identified as solidly Republican.

Conservatives may find solace in the fact that young people are still much less likely to vote than their parents or grandparents. But that may be changing too. Millennial turnout was 42% in the 2018 midterms, roughly double what it was four years prior, and they voted for Democrats by roughly 2 to 1. That turnout helped send 20 millennials to Congress, from firebrand socialists like Ocasio-Cortez in New York City to moderate seat flippers like Representative Abby Finkenauer in Iowa. And nearly 60% of Americans under 30 say they definitely plan to vote in 2020.

And yet the GOP is growing in the various minority communities and among non single non urban women. We aren’t going away. People have been writing us off from time to time since 1932.

Millennials are far from a monolithic voting block. Many millennials were raised and still live in rural areas. Most in my area are Trump supporters or have no issue with him. They have nothing in common with your wacky socialist democrat weirdos.

These new women and minority GOP candidates are the face and the future of the GOP.  Look for a minority woman from the south to top the GOP ticket in 2024.

Most of the women I know are strong and rational, which is why virtually none of them support Trump. A few of my cousins wives back in Arkansas are Trump supporters but I wouldn't describe any of them as rational or "strong" unless you meant it in the physical sense. Anyone so easily bamboozled or charmed by such a narcissistic charlatan like dishonest Donald certainly can't be considered "strong" of mind or will.

The Stepford Syndrome is real. 

Example:  Sen. Susan Collins.

However, these are examples of non-qualifiers:  Rep. Liz Cheney and Sen. Marsha Blackburn.  They simply fall in the category of non-qualifier.

Saw an interview on the TV with an Iowa couple.  They are farm owners, white, christian and holding nearly 20,000 acres.  They admitted their financial standing has taken serious hits under The Trump Administration, however their support for Trump is unwavering because of Trump's stands on ( abortion, guns, gay rights and foreigners. )

There it is.  There you have it.  America will finally get to be the nation it always claimed it wasn't.  Winning!

There is this too, for those with a historical bent of mind.  In March, 1945 as the Russian Army was hammering Berlin with artillery and 300,000 Russian troops were poised to invade the city, Hitler, ensconced in his bunker, inquired from his generals as to why General Van Zangen had not yet smashed the Russian offensive.  Allegedly their answer was, "Any day now."

Women for Trump screaming--please take away my, "Choice, Equal Pay and everything else you old white men desire."  Van Zangen is on the way.
