“Kathleen Peters is an impressive candidate with solid experience in the Florida House of Representatives. She has all the right ingredients for victory,” says Sandra B. Mortham, Chairman of Maggie’s List.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
Maggie’s List, a federal political action committee dedicated to electing conservative women to federal office, is proud to announce the endorsement of Kathleen Peters for the upcoming special election for Florida’s 13th U.S. Congressional District seat. Following the unexpected passing of the late Congressman Bill Young in October, the seat will be filled through a primary election in January 14, 2014 and a special general election March 11, 2014.
“I am extremely honored and excited to be endorsed by Maggie’s List. This endorsement is especially important to me given that Maggie’s List was founded by former Florida Secretary of State Sandra Mortham and she was a 40+ year resident of this very district,” states Kathleen Peters. “I look forward to standing for fiscal conservatives in the United States Congress.”
“Kathleen Peters is an impressive candidate with solid experience in the Florida House of Representatives. She has proven electability in this district and can help put an end to the overspending and encroachment of personal freedoms rampant in the Obama administration and the liberal-led U.S. Senate. Kathleen previously served the people of the district as Mayor of South Pasadena, FL. Kathleen’s record shows a strong belief in fiscal conservatism, less government, more personal responsibility and strong national security that we look for in national caliber candidates. She has all the right ingredients for victory,” says Sandra B. Mortham, Chairman of Maggie’s List.
According to the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University, women comprise over 56% of all voters, but less than 20% of representation at the Congressional level. A mere 293 women have ever served in the United States Congress. Four states have never elected a woman to the U.S. House of Representatives or U.S. Senate. Maggie’s List was founded as a national organization to address these inequities and improve representation of fiscally conservative women.
