RSLC Spotlights Senator Sharon Hewitt of Louisiana
WASHINGTON (December 3, 2018) – Senator Sharon Hewitt (District 1), a veteran deep-water energy engineer, and vanguard for women playing a leadership role in the oil and gas industry, is the embodiment of the Republican State Leadership Committee’s (RSLC) Future Majority Project (FMP) and Right Women, Right Now (RWRN) initiatives. Recently, Hewitt took the message of the RSLC’s FMP and RWRN initiatives to the New Mexico Rise Summit to encourage the female leaders of tomorrow to advocate in the public arena and run for elected office.
“Like U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, and Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, state legislators and alumnae of the RSLC like Senator Sharon Hewitt have proven themselves to be the national and statewide leaders of tomorrow,“ said Matt Walter, President of the Republican State Leadership Committee. “Senator Hewitt’s impressive background as a business leader and successful elected official puts her on any short list of contenders for higher office,” added Walter.
Since 2012, the RSLC’s Right Women, Right Now and Future Majority Project Initiatives have invested over $28 million to elect female and candidates of diversity to state level office in all fifty states. For more information on these initiatives, please visit www.rslc.gop.
