Chesterfield, VA – Maggie’s List, a Federal PAC which was founded in 2010 to raise awareness and funds to increase the number of conservative women elected to federal public office, has officially endorsed Tina Ramirez for Congress in Virginia’s 7th District (VA-07). This further builds on the momentum that Tina has been building since the first week of announcing, during which she announced that she had raised over $100,000. As the first Republican to receive a national endorsement in VA-07, Tina has further cemented her standing as the frontrunner to take on incumbent Abigail Spanberger in 2022. This comes on the heels of the release of her first round of endorsements from public officials; Tina is the only candidate to demonstrate such a wide range of broad support.
The following quote is all attributable to Tina Ramirez: “It’s an honor to be endorsed by Maggie’s List, which is an amazing organization that I have been proud to work with and support. This is a strong group of Conservative women and I am humbled to be counted among them. Together, we will take back the House and Senate in 2022 and restore our shared American values.”
Whether crafting legislation, securing the release of imprisoned victims, or engaging foreign dignitaries, Tina Ramirez has worked diligently to bring greater freedom and dignity to people around the world. From her early days as a high school teacher, through recent years in charge of an international non-profit organization, she has committed her entire life to service and to the preservation of human rights for all people.
In 2013, she used her experience to create Hardwired Global, an organization that addresses the root causes of religious conflict and works to defend the rights of the oppressed. She has since worked in more than 30 countries and trained hundreds of journalists, lawyers, religious leaders, and teachers. She has testified before the U.S. Congress, the United Nations, and the African Union, and has published several articles and books related to her work on human rights and religious freedom.
Tina was raised in Powhatan County, Virginia where her father founded a medical practice and her mother ran a midwifery practice. Tina now lives in Richmond with her daughter, Abigail.
