Maggie’s List Proudly Endorses Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno for Governor of New Jersey:
The First Ever Endorsement of an Executive Statewide Candidate
(Washington, DC) – Maggie’s List, a federal political action committee dedicated to electing conservative women to office, is proud to announce the first endorsement of a statewide candidate Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno for the governor of New Jersey.
Lt. Gov. Kim won the primary election in 2016. She is currently on track to become a part of history and join a select number of fiscally conservative women who have had the opportunity to serve as governor.
“Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno is a proven leader who brings so much to the state of New Jersey,” states Sandra B. Mortham, Chairman of Maggie’s List and former Florida Secretary of State. “Her service in New Jersey, coupled with her relentless leadership and work on issues that directly impact the citizens, the businesses, the military installations and the environment of New Jersey, make her the right candidate to represent the state’s citizens and interests as governor.”
Lieutenant Governor Kim states, "I am honored and humbled to be the first statewide and gubernatorial candidate endorsed by Maggie’s List. This important endorsement shows the national attention and interest in our campaign to create a more affordable New Jersey."
“Lt. Gov. Guadagno upholds the values and leadership that Maggie’s List aspires for our country to have. As a fiscal conservative, Kim will bring Main Street values to the governor's office and she advocates for lower property taxes so that families can afford to stay in New Jersey,” states Sandra B. Mortham.
Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno is a dedicated mother of three, a community leader, and an outstanding citizen. For years Lt Gov. Kim has dedicated her life to serving those around her. In 2007 Lt. Gov. Guadagno was elected the first woman sheriff in Monmouth County. She has served the people of New Jersey as the assistant attorney general and is currently serving as the lieutenant governor. Kim was elected in 2009 and re-elected in 2013. She has worked tirelessly as the lieutenant governor to recruit new businesses and plan for the expansion of military bases in New Jersey. As governor of New Jersey, Kim will make New Jersey affordable by lowering property taxes and bring Main Street values to office.
Women currently hold only six governor’s seats. Currently four of the six women serving as governors are fiscal conservatives. Throughout history, only 39 women have ever served as governor in 28 states. This abysmal number is something that Maggie’s List works to correct to by electing fiscally conservative women to the U.S. House, Senate and now governor’s offices.
