A key fundraising group for Republican women had some choice words for GOP Reps Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA) and Lauren Boebert (CO), saying they are undermining the work of conservative female lawmakers.
“While we rightfully celebrate the number of GOP women serving in the House, I’ve always professed quality over quantity,” the Value In Electing Women Political Action Committee’s Julie Conway told Business Insider. “The work of Congress is not a joke or reality show. Our women have fought too hard for too long to be respected and taken seriously as legislators, policy makers and thought leaders. We cannot let this work be erased by individuals who chose to be shameless self-promoters and carnival barkers.”
“I think that they would rather draw attention to themselves, and really Marjorie Taylor Greene more than Boebert, but they’re cut from the same cloth,” Conway added.
While Conway says she doesn’t expect to fund primaries against Greene or Boebert, she says she wants to “operate in a world of reality” when doing her fundraising work, adding that she “certainly wouldn’t take it off the table” if she found a good female candidate who wanted to challenge Greene or Boebert.
“There is too much at stake and too many true public servants to allow the noise of the few to overshadow the work of the many,” she said.
