National Federation of Republican Women
Affirms GOP Support of Women at Board Meeting

Refutes Democrats' Claim of 'Republican War on Women'

NEW ORLEANS – More than 250 Republican women leaders from across the nation gathered at the National Federation of Republican Women’s (NFRW) spring board meeting in New Orleans on March 15-17 to prepare for the 2012 elections and to declare that the latest Democrat media strategy is just a cheap political ploy. 

“Democrats are running around squawking about a ‘Republican War on Women,’” NFRW President Rae Lynne Chornenky said. “They are ignoring the indisputable fact that the NFRW has more than 75,000 female members whose leadership, influence, skill and passion for conservative principles form the backbone of our party, and have for more than 70 years. This liberal campaign scheme is clearly a sign of desperation and is simply not rooted in fact.”

Chornenky encouraged attendees to stand strong during this critical campaign year. “It will take all of us, working as a unified team, to restore effective leadership to our great nation. We must elect a Republican president and U.S. Senate in November, and maintain our numbers in the U.S. House and in state and local governments.”

In preparation for the elections, attendees participated in workshops on the national political landscape and on counteracting voter fraud. In addition, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal delivered an inspirational keynote address on why conservative initiatives are working in his state and across the nation.

Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation and in several U.S. territories, 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.
