NFRW Congratulates Trump, All Republican Victors
Recognizes Rosie, Members for Playing Significant Role in Securing Victories
ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Carrie Almond, President of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), issued the following statement regarding the results of the 2016 election.
"We've reached our destination! Welcome to your new White House home, President-Elect Donald J. Trump and First Lady-to-be Melania Trump! Rosie and the women of the National Federation of Republican Women are thrilled to have played a significant role in your long, arduous, but exhilarating and inspirational journey to victory.
"With Republican victories in both the Senate and the House of Representatives, we are assured that the goals that have been set to right the wrongs of the past eight years and to restore a government that will keep our country strong, bring back an economy that will restore jobs and regain our standing as the pre-eminent country in the world will be met.
"As the largest grassroots women's political organization in the country, NFRW pledges its continued support to GOP candidates and elected officials in the pursuit of good governance at every level. We are proud of the hard work and the thousands of volunteer hours of our members that contributed to this moment."
Founded in 1938, the NFRW proudly represents the party that first made it possible for women to vote in the U.S. Today, the NFRW works to increase the effectiveness and relevance of women in the cause of good government. Our mission remains to recruit and elect Republican candidates, promote the principles of the Republican Party, educate the public and inform the media.
The Virginia Federation of Republican Women (VFRW) is a member of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW). We have 57 clubs across the Commonwealth of Virginia and welcome the membership of Republican Women in the VFRW.

From the desk of VFRW President Ellen Nau:
Dear Fellow VFRW Members,
To say we live in perilous times seems to trivialize the dangers of the current political situation that we are now confronting in our nation. The sacrifices of our colonial forefathers who risked everything to establish our independence and institute a constitutional government could be rendered null and void if we do not win this 2016 Presidential Election! The work and toil of our immigrant ancestors who came from every corner of the globe to work and build a great economy could be for nothing. Are these possibilities acceptable to us, the children and grandchildren of the sufferers of the Great Depression, the survivors of Pearl Harbor and the beaches of Normandy? NO!
As a unit of the NFRW, the VFRW must stand resolute in unity for our GOP ticket. Indeed, NFRW President Carrie Almond has reminded us - in the March, October 10 edition of Capitol Connection - of the NFRW unity resolution passed in March.
The recent email revelations of religious bigotry by Clinton and her cronies are very disturbing. The Pilgrims did not come here for a picnic at the end of a cruise…they came for religious freedom. We are the nation of refuge for those who suffer religious and political persecution throughout the world.
Think about what could happen to the Supreme Court if Clinton is elected! Justice Ginsberg may no longer be snoozing at public events – a good thing. But a Clinton appointee could replace her and other justices ready for retirement.
Will Clinton resort to Executive Order to limit your right to bear arms? Right to free assembly? Right to free speech?
Ring your individual Liberty Bell. Call your friends, relatives, business associates etc. Urge them to support the Republican ticket.
Stand strong, and on to Victory in November.
