The Year of the Conservative Women in Minnesota

Saint Paul, Minnesota, November 2, 2010 – VOICES of Conservative Women (VOICESPAC) reports that a majority of our endorsed State Legislative and local candidates prevailed on Election Day. Not only did we donate funds to our 15 candidates; we actively campaigned in 9 of our targeted races. VOICESPAC mailed prospective women voters, completed targeted literature drops, made thousands of phone calls and released a radio and web campaign on behalf of competitive races. We are proud to have been able to help our great conservative women candidates win yesterday.

“In our first year of operation, VOICESPAC believes the reason our candidates won was because the voters agreed that we needed to put the “Common-Sense Pocket Book Moms” into elected offices up and down the ballot.   The 10 women leaders that were elected to the Minnesota State House and Senate are exactly those types of leaders,” said Jennifer DeJournett, Director of VOICES of Conservative Women.   “We also stand in support of our 5 endorsed candidates who did not prevail and will be looking forward to supporting their future runs for office.”

“Since 1993, Conservative Women numbers at the State Capitol has remained stagnant.  2010 is the year of the Conservative Women in Minnesota. Conservative Women were elected in large numbers all across Minnesota and all across this country,” concluded DeJournett.

Congratulations to VOICESPAC 2010 Women Candidates
