WASHINGTON, D.C. – Hillary Clinton clinched enough delegates to win the democratic nomination, making her the first woman to ever become a major party’s presidential nominee. Independent Women’s Forum, the leading women’s group on the right, released the following statement in response to Mrs. Clinton’s presumptive nomination:
"It’s no secret that Hillary Clinton has been running to be the first woman President. While we applaud any woman who puts the hard work into running for public office, Americans ought to consider the real impact of a President Hillary Clinton. While she has tried to present herself as a champion for women’s rights, Mrs. Clinton – like so many other progressives in Washington – supports policies and legislation that will ultimately backfire on women and their families. Whether it’s her support of government-run health care, higher taxes, more energy regulations, or the micromanaging of the labor force, Clinton’s vision for America is one in which an even greater government would be at the center.
"Today, more than ever before, we need leaders in Washington, in the states, and at the local level who embrace a smaller government so that we can fulfill a promise of real economic growth and opportunity for women and their families"
Independent Women's Forum works to improve the lives of Americans by increasing the number of women who value free-markets and personal liberty.
