Dear WISH Friend,

We are writing with exciting news for our members, our candidates and the common sense Republican movement. At the outset of this 2010 election year, The WISH List is preparing to join forces with our longtime strategic partner, the Republican Majority for Choice. They share our commitment to the fight for common sense in the GOP, preserving women’s reproductive rights and, through their PAC, to the election of pro-choice Republicans.

Together, our combined memberships will present a formidable force against extremists at both ends of the political spectrum who would seek to silence voices of moderation in our local, state and federal governments. The stakes we fight for remain high; as mainstream Republicans we must remain vigilant in our efforts to preserve women’s reproductive health choices in 2010 and beyond.

Since The WISH List was founded in 1992, our organization has provided strategic advice, training, and financial support to hundreds of outstanding pro-choice Republican women candidates. With the help of loyal members like you, WISH Members have given a combined total of $3.5 million in contributions to impressive GOP women running for local, state and federal offices all across the country.

Our efforts helped to maintain a strong force of socially moderate, fiscally conservative GOP women in the U.S. Congress. The WISH List also has helped elect dozens of state legislators, as well as mainstream governors such as former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman and Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell. Thank you for your commitment to this important cause!

WISH urges you to help us continue this important fight by supporting The WISH List Project through the Republican Majority for Choice and asks that you join or renew your Republican Majority for Choice membership today.  

This new endeavor creates exciting opportunities for WISH List members. You can designate your contribution by writing a check to The WISH List Project, and these funds will be used to promote the outstanding work of pro-choice Republican women who are fighting for the issues we care so much about. You can also make your check out to the Republican Majority for Choice to be designated for projects ranging from legislative advocacy to grass roots lobbying at the state and federal levels.

Your resources will be used to promote a common sense GOP message through editorials and press events. With your support, we also will continue our efforts to stop the passage of fundamental, anti-choice resolutions and the further swing to the extreme at the Republican National Committee. In addition, The WISH List Project will continue mailings for individual candidates as we always have, and we hope that you will continue to support our great candidates.

In the coming weeks, we will be revealing a streamlined website and social media network that will give common sense Republicans a one-stop opportunity to offer support and find more information about issues from legislation to ballot initiatives to campaign updates and beyond.  

Thank you for your longtime friendship and support of The WISH List and its Republican women candidates. With your help, WISH has made a significant improvement in the political landscape in Washington, D.C. and in state capitols across the country. We are confident that this new endeavor will take these goals to the next level.  We have more opportunities now than ever and we hope you will continue to work with us to keep this effort alive and moving forward!
