"Conservative women are stepping up to lead in Minnesota and across the nation. I am honored to be one of those women and to have earned the support of Winning for Women. Women are problem-solvers. We get the job done. That is what I have done in the legislature where I have fought to put the people of Minnesota first by delivering $650 million in tax cuts and millions in infrastructure investments.
