The Republican State Leadership Committee’s (RSLC) Future Majority Project (FMP) seeks to identify, recruit, train and support candidates who better reflect the full diversity of our nation. Launched in 2011, FMP supports men and women from diverse communities as they run to grow the economy, support job creators and focus on ways to keep more money in the pockets of working families. The efforts are helping to build a strong bench of current and future Republican leaders.

El Proyecto de la Mayoría Futura (Future Majority Project, FMP) del Comité Republicano de Liderazgo Estatal (Republican State Leadership Committee, RSLC) tiene como objetivo reclutar, entrenar y respaldar a candidatos que mejor reflejen la diversidad total de nuestra nación. FMP, creado en el 2011, apoya a hombres y mujeres de comunidades diversas en su postulación para incrementar la economía, apoyar a los creadores de empleos, y concentrarse en formas para que las familias trabajadoras tengan más ingresos. En el ciclo electoral del 2014, FMP logró la elección de 43 nuevos candidatos diversos en cargos legislativos en toda la nación, contribuyendo a la creación de una sólida bancada de líderes republicanos actuales y futuros.


• Building upon FMP’s 2012 successes – in which the RSLC invested $5 million and focused on candidates of Hispanic descent and increasing targeted outreach to younger voters – the RSLC became bigger, broader and bolder in extending the reach of FMP for the 2013-2014 cycle. Since 2013, FMP has focused on recruiting candidates of all diverse backgrounds to run for state-level offices nationwide. Incorporating a 50-state strategy, the RSLC took several key steps to ensure that on Election Day 2014, there would be a significant increase in Republican diverse elected officials at the state level.

• For the 2015-2016 election cycle, FMP aims to spend at least $7 million – in partnership with Right Women, Right Now – to recruit 250 new, diverse candidates and see 50 of those appointed or elected to office. FMP plans to see 10 diverse elected officials enter leadership and expand the initiative’s “Diversity in Business” roundtable program.

• In 2015, FMP supported Lt. Governor Jenean Hampton, the first African American elected statewide in Kentucky; Shane Aguirre (HD-17), the first Latino elected to the Mississippi State House; and Jason Miyares (HD-82), the first Cuban American to serve as a Virginia Delegate.

• For the 2013-2014 cycle, FMP identified, recruited, trained and supported over 240 diverse candidates in 40 states to run for elected office at the state level. FMP recruitment began in May of 2013.

• That cycle, RSLC staff visited over 25 states for in-person recruitment meetings, candidate trainings and events primarily in the Desert Southwest, Pacific Northwest and Midwest/Great Lakes regions.

• In partnership with the RSLC’s RLCC, RLGA and RSSC caucuses, FMP has hosted nine small business roundtables with women and minority business leaders in California, Washington, Iowa, Indiana and Pennsylvania.

• In a combined effort to recruit more women to run for office through the RSLC’s Right Women, Right Now initiative, the RSLC invested over $6 million through FMP and Right Women, Right Now over the course of the 2014 cycle to elect 43 new candidates of diverse ethnicity and 138 new women.

• In 2014 and 2015, seven diverse statewide Republicans were elected: Carlos Lopez-Cantera (Florida Lt. Governor), Evelyn Sanguinetti (Illinois Lt. Governor), Jenean Hampton (Kentucky Lt. Governor), Boyd Rutherford (Maryland Lt. Governor), John Sanchez (New Mexico Lt. Governor), Chris Benge (Oklahoma Secretary of State) & Carlos Cascos (Texas Secretary of State).
