Women for Duffy Rally in WausauOctober 19th
Wausau – More than 100 women gathered last night to rally support for Congressman Sean Duffy’s first reelection campaign.
“Women drive this economy. We care deeply that prices are rising at the pump and at the grocery store. We want less debt for our children and more prosperity for the future,” said event keynote speaker Rachel Campos-Duffy, wife of Congressman Sean Duffy. “Moms and families have been hurt by skyrocketing gas prices and we want a president who will build the Keystone Pipeline and promote American energy. America will be safer when we stop sending money to nations that hate us."
“Most importantly, moms, dads and grandparents across America care about the avalanche of debt we are leaving our kids. More than 50 percent of women graduating from college can’t find work and are moving into their parents’ basements instead of onto their dream jobs. It’s simply immoral," said Campos-Duffy.
Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, another keynote speaker, rallied the women by making clear their importance in this election. "85 percent of household decisions are made by women, but many feel like the candidates don't understand them," Kleefisch said. She supplemented her speech by stating a clear call to action. "We've got to tell others why this election is so crucial. Get out that cell phone and call up your friends!"
In addition to her moving speech, special guest Christy Stutzman, wife of Congressman Marlin Stutzman (IN-3), performed a breathtaking rendition of "God Bless America" which ended with an instant standing ovation by the energetic audience.
The night ended with mingling and laughter as women came together, united, with the active call to influence other women in these next crucial weeks.
