RSLC Announces Maximum Contribution to Kelly Langschultz
WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 24, 2017) — Today, the Republican State Leadership Committee donated the maximum contribution of $8,200 to Republican candidate Kelly Langschultz as part of its “Right Women, Right Now” initiative and declared the 38th Senate District in New Jersey as a 2017 Race to Watch.
RSLC President Matt Walter released the following statement on the race:
“The constituents of the 38th Senate District deserve to be represented by a successful small businesswoman and common-sense problem-solver who won’t always resort to raising taxes and fees on middle-class families. Unlike Bob “Gas Tax” Gordon, Kelly Langschultz knows the taxpayers of New Jersey already pay enough in taxes to make up for years of budgetary malpractice by Democrats in Trenton. While New Jersey citizens are suffering through the transit “Summer of Hell”1, “Gas Tax” Gordon says the system is working “pretty well”2 and voted to raise the gas tax by 23 cents this past session3! Voters are sick and tired of out of touch politicians reaching into their wallets to pay for their out of control spending and that’s why we are proud to support Kelly Langschultz for Senate.”

The Republican State Leadership Committee’s (RSLC) Right Women, Right Now (RWRN) initiative serves to identify, recruit and support women candidates nationwide in order to help elect more Republican leaders who better embody the electorate of our country, where women are 53 percent of the voters. RWRN offers candidate trainings, mentorship matchings, and digital organizing tools for our candidates’ campaigns for state-level office. Since its founding in 2012, RWRN has recruited hundreds of women candidates, elected 386 new women to office and continues working to grow the largest caucus of Republican elected women in the country. In partnership with the RSLC’s Future Majority Project (FMP), which aims to elect candidates from all diverse communities, RWRN invested $7 million between 2015-2016 to identify, recruit and support these candidates.
