In Today's Politics, Spouses of Candidates Run for Office Too

The spouses of Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry and Jon Huntsman will be participating in the upcoming Women Working for Change conference, event organizers Project GOPink announced today.  Callista Gingrich, Anita Perry and Mary Kaye Huntsman will take time off the campaign trail to relate their experiences as conservative women in the spotlight. In addition, Caroline Roemer will represent her father, former Louisiana governor Buddy Roemer.

“Being the spouse of a presidential candidate is a unique situation that brings with it special challenges and opportunities,” said Project GOPink founder Suzanne Haik Terrell. “These women must balance life on the campaign trail with family and community obligations. We are thrilled that Callista, Anita, Mary Kaye and Caroline are taking time from their busy lives to share these experiences with our attendees, most of whom face similar challenges in their lives as activists and candidates.”

Women Working For Change will take place November 17-19 at the Gaylord National Resort, located in National Harbor, MD. Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Gov. Jan Brewer, Senator Kelly Ayotte, Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, Secretary Margaret Spellings, Mrs. Gail Huff Brown, and many other prominent conservative voices will address this conference of rising political stars.

The goal of Project GOPink is to motivate, mentor, and mobilize women across the country in an effort to help more Republican women seek federal, state and local office. As part of this mission, Project GOPink has started the Women Working For Change conference to connect a new generation of activists and candidates with today’s officeholders and opinion leaders. More information about this conference can be found at http://www.wwfc2011.com. Project GOPink earlier this week released its first web-ad, “Let’s Move”, which sets a spirited tone for the upcoming conference and election year.
