E-PAC Announces First U.S. Senate Candidate Endorsement; Elise Stefanik Backs Jane Timken in Ohio

Washington, D.C.— E-PAC, GOP House Conference Chair Elise Stefanik’s PAC to recruit and elect more Republican women to Congress, today announced the endorsement of former Ohio State GOP Chairman Jane Timken in the race for U.S. Senate in Ohio. 

Today’s announcement represents Stefanik’s first formal endorsement of a Senate candidate in E-PAC’s history and follows E-PAC’s first round of endorsements in the 2022 cycle that included eight Republican women running for Congress.

On endorsing Timken, Stefanik announced:

“I’m thrilled to endorse Jane Timken because she is a true America First fighter with a proven record of taking it to the establishment and delivering for the Conservative agenda,” said Stefanik. “Jane was a crucial team member in President Trump’s fight to Make America Great Again, and I’m confident she is the strongest candidate to carry that America First torch and defeat Democrats’ Socialist agenda in November. Jane is tough as nails, will always fight for what she believes in, and is a leader with integrity who will represent our Party proudly in Washington. I ask every Ohioan that is ready to take our country back to join me in supporting Jane Timken today!”

“Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is a strong leader, unapologetic fighter, and a fierce ally of the America First movement and I’m honored to have her endorsement,” said Timken. “Elise is leading the charge on key issues important to American families whether it be a better economy, safer communities, or parents’ rights in education. I look forward to standing shoulder to shoulder with her as we fire Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and usher in a stronger, more prosperous America for all.”

Congresswoman Elise Stefanik founded E-PAC after the 2018 election cycle to recruit, engage, empower, elevate, and elect more GOP women to office. Since its founding, E-PAC has raised and donated more than $3 million for GOP women candidates. That includes donating and raising over $1,000,000 this cycle, including $700,000 raised directly for GOP women candidates online.

In 2020, E-PAC helped more than double the number of GOP women in Congress in what President Trump called 2020, “The Year of the Republican Women.” 11 out of the 15 seats that flipped red were won by E-PAC endorsed Republican women.
