WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) announced yesterday that Dr. Alexandria Coronado will be featured as a key candidate in their “18 in ’18: Races to Watch – Hispanic Heritage Month Edition.” Comprised of the RSLC’s Future Majority Project (FMP) and Right Women, Right Now (RWRN) candidates of Hispanic heritage who are running for state-level offices around the country this year, these candidates are rising stars who will champion conservative policies while representing the full diversity of the nation. The RSLC’s FMP and RWRN initiatives both aim to identify, recruit, and support new diverse and women candidates at the state level.
RSLC’s “18 in ’18” lists include new and targeted candidates on the ballot this November for the first time, as well as, Republican elected officials who have already achieved electoral success and are in competitive re-election bids.
“I am honored to be named as a key candidate in RSLC’s most recent list of races to watch, especially considering the talented pool of candidates we have,” said Dr. Coronado. “It is thrilling to see individuals of Hispanic heritage rising in leadership positions and influence within the party.”
“As a board member of the RSLC, I am incredibly proud of what the Future Majority Project has done to support Hispanic candidates who have made the decision to run for elected office and generously serve their fellow Americans. The 18 candidates featured in this edition of the “Races to Watch” list embody the emerging faces of the Republican Party and serve as a great example of the continuing contributions of the Hispanic-American community during Hispanic Heritage Month,” said former Governor of Puerto Rico and RSLC Board Member Luis Fortuño.
“Republicans at the state level would not be reaching historical highs, without key candidates like Dr. Alexandria Coronado. As we celebrate the start of Hispanic Heritage Month, the RSLC is bringing attention to outstanding Future Majority Project (FMP) and Right Women, Right Now (RWRN) candidates of Hispanic heritage running in critical races,” said Matt Walter, President of the Republican State Leadership Committee.
