Pam Bondi Helping Lead New GOP Women’s Group

Attorney General Pam Bondi will co-chair a group focused on getting more Republican women elected to state offices. The Republican State Leadership Committee has decided to “relaunch” its Right Women, Right Now effort to help female GOP candidate, the group said Thursday.

Bondi will serve as one of four co-chairs, along with Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman and Tennessee Speaker Beth Harwell. Joint statement:

We applaud the Republican State Leadership Committee’s strong commitment to recruit and support women to state office. Right Women, Right Now has brought together a group of proven women leaders from across the nation who are passionate about increasing the number of Republican women in state level office. We look forward to working together to implement this long-term, sustainable project of identifying and recruiting qualified women to run for office.

As NBC News points out, the initiative dovetails nicely with the GOP’s broader efforts to re-brand itself after the 2012 elections. It could also help raise Bondi’s statewide and national profile.
