After Republican women set a record in Congress in the 2020 election, the 2022 midterm elections are shaping up to deliver another “Year of Republican Women,” according to Republican agents and candidates.

Thirty-two Republican women won election to Congress in 2020, surpassing the record of 30 Republican women set in 2006. Maggie’s List, a political action committee dedicated to increasing the number of conservative women elected to public office federal government, has endorsed more than 50 female GOP nominees so far.

“Eleven of the 15 seats Republicans moved from blue to red in 2020 were held by women,” Tina Ramirez, Virginia chair of Maggie’s List and state Senate candidate, told Fox News Digital.

“Since then, the policies of the Biden administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress have been disastrous, especially economically,” Ramirez added. “We saw last year in Virginia Winsome Sears, who I nominated for Maggie’s List endorsement, become lieutenant governor and a huge swing of women voters to the right. With those terms, I think it’s safe to say that Republican women are due for another record setting year.”

“At Maggie’s List, we’ve endorsed over 50 terrific GOP candidates for the Midterms with more to come,” she said. “The women are all amazing leaders and I’m thrilled to be working to get them all elected.”

“We’re going to have another banner year for Hispanic women joining the Republican Party because the radical left is out of touch with what matters most to women – the fact that a dollar can’t go as far as two years,” Alexis Martinez Johnson, Republican candidate for New Mexico’s 3rd congressional district, told Fox News Digital.

“In New Mexico and across the country, families are hurting, which is why women are turning to the Republican Party,” Martinez Johnson added. “Our families cannot thrive under Joe Biden’s crippling inflation.”

“President Trump’s leadership has inspired Americans of all walks of life to help take our country back,” Jennifer Carnahan, a candidate for Minnesota’s 1st congressional district in a special election this year, told Fox News Digital. “Of these, many women eventually stood up and ran for office, myself included.”

“Now these women are quickly becoming the face of the Republican Party and inspiring many, many more to come forward,” Carnahan added. “Women are now leading the charge to take back the House, put a stop to Joe Biden’s failed agenda, and save our nation.”

“I’m incredibly proud of the work we’ve done with Maggie’s List to elect strong conservative women across the country,” Wendy Gade, Virginia Chapter co-chair, told Fox News Digital. “I believe the victories of Republican women running for Congress will absolutely be the story of this election cycle.”
