Maggie’s List Endorses Hawaii U.S. Senate Candidate Linda Lingle for 2012:

Federal PAC Committed to Increasing Number of Women Serving in Government

News Release from

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Maggie’s List Chairman and Founder Sandra Mortham today announced the endorsement of Hawaii United States Senate candidate Linda Lingle for 2012. The Federal Political Action Committee is comprised of women leaders across the country and dedicated to electing fiscally responsible women to the U.S House and U.S. Senate.

“Former two-term Republican governor of Hawaii Linda Lingle entered the race a few short weeks ago and Politico has already named her to the ‘Monthly Ten’ to watch for October 2011, while the Rothenberg Report stated “the race in Hawaii has turned from no chance to a legitimate GOP takeover opportunity in matter of a few months,” said Mortham. “This will certainly be a race to watch, and Maggie’s List is proud to support Linda Lingle based on her proven record of results including responsible fiscal management, reducing burdensome government regulations and outstanding support of our military.”

The Hawaii Senate race is an open seat in 2012 due to Democrat Daniel Akaka’s retirement. An October 13-16, 2011 Public Policy Poll showed, when asked if the election were held today, Lingle with an 85% favorable over her Republican primary challenger John Carroll.

Maggie’s List publicly endorsed and financially supported a number of women candidates during the 2010 cycle, including newly elected U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) and Congresswomen Martha Roby (AL-2), Sandy Adams (FL-24), Vicky Hartzler (MO-4), Nan Hayworth (NY-19), Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-25), Renee Ellmers (NC-2), Kristi Noem (SD-AL), Diane Black (TN-6) and Jaime Herrera (WA-3).

About Linda Lingle for United States Senate

Linda Lingle served as Governor of the State of Hawaii from 2002-2010. She was the first woman, first person of Jewish ancestry, and the first Republican in 40 years to lead the Aloha State.

Her Administration was able to confront and manage through one of the most severe economic crises in state history by closing an almost $3 billion gap in state revenues without increasing taxes and while maintaining a “AA” bond rating. With 30 years of public service, Governor Lingle first served the people of Hawaii as a member of the Maui County Council, representing the Island of Molokai from 1981-1991. She then served two full terms as Mayor of Maui from 1991-1999.

About Maggie’s List:

Maggie’s List is a Federal Political Action Committee (PAC) created to increase the number of elected women committed to promoting the values of fiscal conservatism, less government, more personal responsibility and strong national security; thus promoting a more representative government. To advance this mission, Maggie’s List will provide programs and financial support to women candidates who meet these criteria, enabling them to run competitive and successful campaigns for the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.

Maggie’s List was named after Margaret Chase Smith, who became the first woman elected to both houses of Congress (US House 1940-1948; US Senate 1948-1972). She was also the first woman to have her name placed in nomination for the presidency by either of the two major parties, coming in second to the Republican nominee, Senator Barry Goldwater in 1964. It is in her honor, and the legacy of women elected officials, that Maggie’s List was formed.
