National Federation of Republican Women
 to Welcome Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor

Kleefisch to Discuss Wisconsin's Political Environment at Luncheon

CRYSTAL CITY, Va. – Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch will address more than 200 Republican women leaders during the National Federation of Republican Women’s spring board meeting on March 12. She is expected to discuss Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s budget reform bill, which has become a highly visible and controversial national political issue in recent weeks.

Kleefisch, who is a member of Waukesha County Republican Women, will speak during a luncheon at 12:30 p.m. at the Crystal Gateway Marriott. The event is open to the media.

“As a resident of Wisconsin, I am pleased to welcome my state’s new Republican woman lieutenant governor to address our board meeting,” NFRW President Sue Lynch said. “The NFRW was proud to support Rebecca’s candidacy in November, and we our proud of the work she is doing to put Wisconsin back on a path to prosperity.”

The board meeting also will feature Sharon Day, co-chairman of the Republican National Committee, and Jenniffer A. González Colón, Puerto Rico’s speaker of the house, both of whom will speak on March 11.
