Pro-Trump Candidate Could be Youngest Woman Elected to Congress

Underdog pro-Trump Republican candidate Karoline Leavitt won the GOP primary for New Hampshire’s First Congressional District on Tuesday.

The Daily Wire reports:

Leavitt, who worked in former President Donald Trump’s press shop and then for Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), could become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress if she pulls out a win in November. She turned 25 years old last month. 

“It feels like the honor of a lifetime,” the young politico told NH Journal after her win. “I’m so humbled, I’m at a loss for words over the outpouring of support from conservatives, from every community.”

Republican Matt Mowers, who worked on Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and served in the State Department during the Trump administration, was the presumed frontrunner for nearly a year, but in recent weeks Leavitt was able to pull ahead. The 25-year-old received support from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), and other big-name Republicans.

“When we got into this a year ago, nobody knew who I was,” Leavitt said. “I had no money in the campaign account. I just had a drive and a work ethic and a passion to fight for this state and that is paid off over the last year.”

She told supporters, “Tonight, we made history,” adding, “And I look forward to serving as the youngest congresswoman in United States history when we beat Chris Pappas.”
