RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day Speaks to Rock Creek Women's Republican Club
Co-chair Day encouraged club members to work hard and work together to get more Montgomery County voters voting for the Republican ticket.
“If you give a busy woman something to do, she’ll get it done.”
Sharon Day, co-chair of the Republican National Committee, took time out of a busy schedule Tuesday afternoon to speak to the Rock Creek Women’s Republican Club, urging members to work hard and work together to strengthen the Republican vote in Montgomery County.
“Republican women are the life of the Party. … (We’re) the heart of the Party, we’re the soul of the Party. … We will step up and do what needs to be done.”
Day has been co-chair of the RNC since January, after serving as secretary of the RNC for two years. Day is also a successful business woman in the insurance and marketing industries, and strongly supports empowering small businesses and a free market system.
She also believes in the power of women working at the grass-roots level to support the Republican Party in Congress and in the White House.
“The fact is that we don’t just lick stamps, we don’t just greet people at the door,” she said about the federation of Republican women’s clubs across the country.
Republican candidates can “count on the federated women to … fight street-by-street, neighborhood-by-neighborhood,” and added that more and more women from women’s clubs are becoming candidates, too.
Day stressed the things that “make our Party unique” in her speech—support for fewer taxes, more freedoms and small business rights—and urged club members to spread the word about these Republican platforms to get more Montgomery County voters voting Republican in the upcoming 2012 election.
Day also expressed concern with the president and the Senate, speculating that if the Senate and White House remain in Democratic hands after 2012, “I don’t think we’ll have much of a country left.”
The questions that Day took from attendees after her speech focused on what attendees described as wide-spread election fraud and corruption in Montgomery County and Maryland.
But Day backed away from committing the RNC to anything specific in this respect because, as Day explained, elections are a matter for the states—not the federal government—to monitor and manage.
“I just don’t agree with the federal government setting election” standards or rules, she said.
