A political action committee designed to help get more Republican women in Congress is encouraging voters to keep an eye on 7th Congressional District candidate Lynne Homrich.
EPAC, which was started by U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., recently named Homrich as one of 18 candidates on its “Woman to Watch” list. Homrich is one of several Republicans — and one of a few Republican women — who have announced plans to run for what will be an open congressional seat in 2020.
“I am honored to be one of the few candidates included on EPAC’s list of ‘Women to Watch’ and want to thank Congresswoman Stefanik for her vision and action to advance women as leaders in the Republican Party,” Homrich said in a statement. “This recognition is proof that our campaign is continuing to gain momentum and has support from across the 7th District, Georgia and the nation.”
Homrich’s campaign said the announcement that the former Home Depot executive was named to EPAC’s “Women to Watch” list came after she appeared at an event hosted by the PAC last month and on the heels of its third quarter fundraising.
