WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Republican Legislative Campaign Committee (RLCC), a caucus of the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC), announced today that Louisiana Senate Majority Leader Sharon Hewitt will serve as the committee’s chairwoman for the 2021 election cycle.
“After state Republicans’ smashing success in the 2020 cycle, I am energized and ready to keep supporting principled conservative leaders in the next cycle,” said RLCC Chairwoman and Louisiana Senate Majority Leader Sharon Hewitt. “Make no mistake, we absolutely still have our work cut out for us. The RSLC and RLCC have worked tirelessly over the years to recruit and train the best leaders across the country, and I’m proud to lead the movement for state legislators this cycle.”
Leader Hewitt has played a key role with the RLCC, the Future Majority Project (FMP), Right Women, Right Now (RWRN), and previously served on the RLCC’s Executive Committee.
“Leader Hewitt’s business instinct, genuine kindness, and devotion to electing and supporting strong conservatives make her the ideal chair of the RLCC,” said incoming RSLC President Dee Duncan. “You won’t meet a single person who doesn’t agree that Leader Hewitt’s energy and effectiveness are unmatched, and I’m confident she is prepared to meet 2021 with the same force we did in the previous cycle. We are proud to announce Leader Hewitt as chairwoman as we know she will build on RLCC’s record of success and inspire many through her leadership.”
Louisiana Senate Majority Leader Sharon Hewitt came to the Louisiana State Senate as a recognized civic and community leader with decades of volunteer service to area children and families, and is the first female Republican Senate Majority Leader in Louisiana history. She is also chair of the Senate & Governmental Affairs Committee in Louisiana which will be overseeing redistricting efforts in the state. As an engineering executive, Senator Hewitt managed major deepwater assets in the Gulf of Mexico for Shell and earned a reputation as a passionate, committed problem solver. As a state Senator, Hewitt has focused her efforts on stabilizing the state budget, improving education, creating jobs, investing in infrastructure, advocating for families, and restoring Louisiana’s coast. Senator Hewitt married her husband, Stan, over 30 years ago and they have proudly raised two sons, Chris and Brad.
