National Women's Group Maxing Out On Draves

(Source: MIRS.news, Published 06/13/2024) Republican MI-8 candidate Mary Draves is among six female Republican candidates and nine incumbents in competitive seats to pick up the endorsement of the Winning For Women political action committee (PAC), which has raised more than $1 million in hard dollars for its candidates this year.  

In the last campaign cycle, the Winning for Women Action Fund (WFW AF) raised more than $17 million to support GOP women. 

This past Tuesday, WFW AF reportedly invested heavily in a GOTV text message drive in the final days of congressional candidate Julie Fedorchak's winning campaign in North Dakota. For Draves, WFW AF claims it will “max out” to the Draves campaign and has already scheduled fundraisers across the country to help make sure she has “the resources needed to win.”  

According to the Federal Elections Commission, the maximum donation from a PAC is $5,000. Draves is running in a competitive Republican primary against 2022 nominee Paul Junge and Anthony Hudson. The winner is expected to face Democratic Sen. Kristen McDonald Rivet (D-Bay City). The seat was opened up after U.S. Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Flint) said he would not seek another term. 

“From my time at Dow keeping plant workers safely employed, to working with 4H to support the next generation of farmers and agricultural leaders, to working in my family's small business which has provided jobs in mid-Michigan for over 70 years, I understand what is important to our communities and will be a powerful advocate for MI-8 in D.C.,” Draves said.
