Republican congressional candidate Vicky Hartzler announced today that she has won the support of several GOP women leaders who are active nationally in working to elect new conservative leadership in the U.S. House. Hartzler said she is “tremendously encouraged” by a recent trip to the capital that included a fundraising reception on Wednesday.
The Hartzler for Congress reception was hosted by Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Representative Virginia Foxx of North Carolina, and Representative Jean Schmidt of Ohio; and by Maria Cino, Susan Hirschmann, Colleen Holmes, and Pam Pryor, all leaders on behalf of GOP or conservative candidates and issues.
In Missouri, Hartzler campaign treasurer State Senator Delbert Scott said, "It makes all of us so proud for national leaders to testify to what we already know - Vicky has everything it takes to win in August and November, vote Nancy Pelosi out of power, and start putting America back on track with the common sense and values of western Missouri. Last quarter she outraised her nearest primary opponent by more than two-to-one, almost entirely from individual grassroots support. The high-energy grassroots response to Vicky's campaign is like nothing I've seen."
Congresswoman Schmidt had the following supportive words: “I know why Missouri's 4th District is now seen as a victory in the making. The reason is Vicky Hartzler. Her passion, contagious optimism, tremendous energy, and proven principles and heartland values are why I believe she will win this. Vicky will be a leader who values the principles of the people she represents and reflects those principles in Washington. She will be a very strong voice for the people of western Missouri. We need Vicky Hartzler in Washington and I support her and look forward to working with her.”
Hartzler said: “This campaign will be won at the grassroots level in our 4th District, and I am so deeply grateful for the generous donations, time, and support we are receiving throughout our district. I am pleased by the added boost of this encouragement from national conservative leaders.
