GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. – Today, Lynn Afendoulis, candidate for Congress in Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District, received the endorsement of VIEW PAC, a national powerhouse in GOP politics. Lynn is one of just a handful of female candidates from across the country to have received VIEW PAC’s endorsement. As more people learn Lynn’s story, they are drawn to her candidacy and know that she is the best person to make sure a Republican is elected to this seat in November.
“We are proud to endorse Lynn’s campaign for MI-3. As a successful businesswoman and an impactful legislator with a proven conservative record, the voters of West Michigan should know that if they send Lynn Afendoulis to Washington, they will have the representation they’ve been missing under Justin Amash,” said Julie Conway, Executive Director, VIEW PAC.
Lynn Afendoulis added, “I am honored to have the support of VIEW PAC. It’s organizations like VIEW PAC that can fuel strong conservatives across the country to build a conservative majority. As the next representative for Michigan’s 3rd district, I will work for the people and with our President to get things done, while we continue to fight for the very fabric of this nation.”
About VIEW PAC
Value In Electing Women Political Action Committee (VIEW PAC) was founded in 1997 by female Republican Members of Congress and professional women to help elect qualified, viable Republican women to Congress. VIEW PAC is governed by a voluntary Advisory Board responsible for strategic decisions relating to engagement in key federal races. Incumbent GOP women in the House and Senate attend VIEW PAC events, but they have no official operational role.
VIEW PAC is exclusively dedicated to protecting and increasing the number of Republican women in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate. Our singular goal is to strategically provide financial support where and when it is needed most; whether it be for a vulnerable incumbent or a competitive candidate. Since we began our mission over 20 years ago, VIEW PAC has directly contributed and helped to raise over $8,500,000 for Republican women running for Congress.
VIEW PAC strives to support credible, electable Republican women running for federal office and encourages others to do the same. What began as a way to raise money and contribute money now also serves as a network of people who care about helping other women succeed. More women are taking the leap to run for federal office, in part because they believe they will have the support they need to be successful.
While VIEW PAC has done more to support Republican women running for federal office than any other PAC entity in history, we need to do much more to accomplish our collective mission. In the 2018 cycle, VIEW PAC began utilizing its independent expenditure component to strategically deploy voter contact efforts on the ground and on the airwaves to support vulnerable incumbents and competitive challengers when and where they need it the most.
Lynn is running for Congress because she believes we are fighting for the very fabric of who and what we are–the things that President Trump is fighting for and that attracted her grandparents to this country. She wants to protect the rule of law and represent the people of the 3rd District in a way that they’ve been yearning for – with integrity, engagement, and effectiveness. And to show her children that this is all worth fighting for.
