Kari Lake, one of this year’s top conservative women candidates
Is 2022 the Year of the Conservative Woman? Republican women have been generally less represented in elected office than Democrat women, but that’s been changing. All across the nation, conservative women – including a record number of black and Latina women – are stepping up to serve their communities. After conservative women set a record in Congress in the 2020 elections, Republican operatives and candidates say the 2022 midterm elections are shaping up to deliver another banner year.
“Women were responsible for flipping the greatest number of seats in the U.S. House in both of the last two cycles. They flipped some key gubernatorial races. They’re good candidates … they’re proving that they can win,” said Kelly Dittmar, director of research at the Center for American Women and Politics.
You can easily spot the difference between a conservative woman vs. a liberal woman – the former stands up for the founding principles that Americans hold dear while the latter seeks to belittle and destroy everything that’s made America great. Here is a list of strong and courageous conservative women who are standing up for American values and fighting back against the radical left and mainstream media every day.
Heidi Ganahl for Colorado Governor
Heidi Ganahl is best known as the founder of Camp Bow Wow, where she turned a lifelong passion for dogs into the largest pet care franchise in the world. Under Heidi’s leadership, the $150 million brand hit the Inc. 500/5000 list five years in a row and has grown to hundreds of franchises across the U.S. and Canada. Heidi also founded its sister charity, the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, which rehomed over 10,000 pups and helped franchisees raise over a million dollars for animal health causes during her tenure. It also inspired her to build SheFactor—a digital and live community that aims to impact young women by empowering them to pursue a life that they love. Ganahl has been named one of Fortune magazine’s 10 Most Promising Entrepreneurs, and Parade magazine included her in their list of the top women entrepreneurs in the country.

Winsome Sears for Georgia Lieutenant Governor
Winsome Sears, a black woman, was elected to a majority Black legislative district! No other Republican has done that in Virginia since 1865.

Kelly believes that Alaska’s Senate Seat isn’t something that should be passed down like a family heirloom. As one of Alaska’s representatives in Washington, Kelly will always put citizens first and fight for Alaska Values. That means better jobs, fairer trade deals and no more sweetheart deals for DC Insiders.
