Rallies, Other Events Planned in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Following successful tours of the Midwest and the Northeast, the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) will take its nationwide “Destination: White House” campaign to the southern states. Beginning June 17, Rosie – the NFRW’s red, white and blue campaign bus – is traveling to rallies and other events in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
These rallies and events will feature NFRW President Carrie Almond and other NFRW leaders, as well as local Republican elected officials, and GOP and Federation leaders. Attendees will have the opportunity to sign Rosie and have their signatures counted among those of Republican leaders such as House Speaker Paul Ryan. For details on tour stops, visit Rosie's blog at http://www.Rosie16.com.
Since the tour launched from Missouri on May 9, Rosie and the NFRW have traveled more than 5,000 miles to 13 states and the District of Columbia in an effort to register Republican-leaning women to vote and to rally communities and Republican women’s clubs, with the ultimate goal of putting a Republican back in the White House.
“Women's voices and votes will make the difference in this election, and the NFRW is ready to get rolling to ensure Republican victories in November,” NFRW President Carrie Almond said.
The NFRW plans to continue the “Destination: White House” tour through Election Day on November 8.
Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
