KCRW President attends National Convention


President of the Kendall County Republican Women, Pam Watts, and Past President Cathy Jenkins joined more than 1,200 other Republican women leaders from across the nation Sept. 29-Oct. 2 at the National Federation of Republican Women’s 36th biennial convention, which featured a much-anticipated presidential straw poll that received significant national media coverage.
 
During the four-day event, which was one of the largest national gatherings of Republicans this year, registrants participated in leadership training seminars, a campaign management school, and political and policy workshops taught by nationally-recognized experts. They heard from Republican leaders, elected officials and other notable guests, including presidential candidates Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. Other Republican presidential candidates were invited, but did not attend.
 
In the NFRW presidential straw poll, Cain received 48.9 percent of the 505 total votes cast, with Rick Perry placing a distant second and Mitt Romney placing third. The poll featured nine Republican presidential candidates.
 
Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation and in several U.S. territories, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
