Stefanik, R-N.Y., supported eight women who have started congressional bids and issued a list of nearly a dozen "women to watch" — women she considers to be strong candidates and would consider backing later in the cycle.
On Wednesday, Stefanik endorsed Karoline Leavitt for the 1st Congressional District in New Hampshire. Leavitt previously served as Stefanik's spokeswoman and as an assistant press secretary to former President Trump.
Stefanik also supported Esther Joy King for Illinois' 17th Congressional District, a veteran who served in Afghanistan as an aid worker and a Judge Advocate General Corps member in the U.S. Army Reserve. She is now a lawyer focusing on economic development and real estate.
Stefanik praised Amanda Adkins for Kansas' 3rd Congressional District, who has worked as an executive at a global Kansas City-based health care and information technology company after serving as the Kansas Republican Party chairwoman.
She also gave her support to April Becker, a small business owner and lawyer for Nevada's 3rd Congressional District; Lisa Scheller, a small business owner, for Pennsylvania's 7th Congressional District; Monica De La Cruz, a small business owner, for Texas' 15th Congressional District; and Jeanine Lawson, the vice-chair of the Virginia Railway Express Operations Board and chair of the Innovation Owner's Association Board of Directors, for Virginia's 10th Congressional District.
Stefanik also endorsed Jen Kiggans, a Virginia State Senator, nurse practitioner, and a former U.S. Navy helicopter pilot for Virginia's 2nd Congressional District.
As for the "women to watch," Stefanik threw her support behind Tanya Wheeless for Arizona's 9th Congressional District; Tamika Hamilton for California's 3rd; Meagan Hanson for Georgia's 6th; Anna Paulina Luna for Florida's 13th; Amanda Makki for Florida's 13th; Nicole Hasso for Iowa's 3rd; Jennifer-Ruth Green for Indiana's 1st; Carolina Serrano for Nevada's 4th; Liz Joy for New York's 20th; Lori Chavez-DeRemer for Oregon's 5th and Taylor Keeney for Virginia's 7th.
"I look forward to supporting these women across the finish line in both their primaries and general elections," Stefanik told Fox News. "Make no mistake, GOP women will be the first ones through the breach to fire Nancy Pelosi once and for all."
Stefanik established E-PAC to "recruit, engage, empower, elevate and elect more GOP women to office."
"E-PAC's endorsed candidates are determined to build on the historic success of last cycle, when we more than doubled the Republican women elected to Congress," Stefanik said. "In 2020, GOP women were history makers, and in 2022, GOP women will be majority makers."
