The first round of 27 endorsements includes 18 House Republican incumbents, 5 candidates running for 2022 midterms, 2 running in special elections this year, a Senate candidate and a lieutenant governor candidate.

Stephanie Kunze, who’s running this year in a special election in Ohio’s 15th Congressional District.
Also on the list is Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY-21), who last month was elected House Republican Conference chair – the House GOP’s number-three leadership position – succeeding Cheney, who was ousted from her leadership post.

Maggie’s List President Sandra Mortham told Fox News “Voters made history in 2020 by electing the largest-ever group of conservative women to federal office, and we are ready to build upon those gains in upcoming elections.”
“Maggie’s List-endorsed candidates understand that the only way to move our country in a positive direction is to focus on fiscal responsibility, strong national defense and personal responsibility. Our grassroots network is already hard at work earning support for Maggie’s List candidates in their primary and general election races, and we look forward to helping them secure victories this year and next,” she added.
