Republican Party Attracting More Diverse Candidates Than Ever
Parents have been frustrated by forced masking policies, lockdowns, and social justice curriculum like critical race theory and transgender ideology being taught in their children’s schools to the detriment of traditional subjects such as math, English, and science.
As a result, moms across the country have been running for, and in many cases winning school board positions.
Eighteen months after former school board members Tiffany Justice and Tina Descovich founded the parents’ rights activist group Moms for Liberty, their first national “Joyful Warriors” summit drew over 500 guests and several conservative powerhouses like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, National Republican Senatorial Committee Chair Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), and Dr. Ben Carson to Tampa, Florida, between July 15 and July 17.
With 100,000 members across 195 chapters in 37 states, the strength of their numbers is making Mom’s for Liberty a growing political influence.
“If you guys run, you are going to make everybody else win,” Scott said during his remarks on July 16.
