(RoyalPatriot.com )- On Tuesday, a 23-year-old Republican announced her campaign to unseat two-term New Hampshire Democrat Congressman Chris Pappas in 2022. Karoline Leavitt would be 25 if she takes office in January 2023 – which would make her the youngest woman elected to the House of Representatives.
The ‘Live Free or Die State’ is my home and radical Leftists are trying to destroy our freedom.
I’m running for Congress – to serve as a bold conservative 🔥FIREWALL🔥 for New Hampshire between ‘We The People’ and the DC swamp.
— Karoline Leavitt (@kleavittnh) July 20, 2021
Leavitt enters the race already with significant national support. She served as assistant press secretary for President Trump and in January became the spokeswoman for New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik.
A native of New Hampshire, Leavitt attended Saint Anselm College. Her parents launched a number of small businesses including a successful truck dealership and ice cream shop where Leavitt once worked.
While New Hampshire is considered a purple state, Leavitt is running as an unabashed conservative – “proudly pro-life, pro-liberty and pro-gun.” While Pappas has held the seat since 2018, he won reelection in 2020 by a mere 51 percent of the vote. And as the district flipped to red in both midterms during Obama’s tenure, Democrats are nervous that Pappas may not be able to hold on in 2022.
Congresswoman Stefanik, who was instrumental in electing women Republicans to the House in 2020, called Leavitt one of the “many bright, rising Republican stars who are raising their hands to run for office to Fire Nancy Pelosi and save America.”
As yet, former President Donald Trump has not announced an endorsement for Leavitt’s campaign. One other former Trump aide, Matt Mowers, who lost to Pappas in 2020, may run again. Mowers is a close ally of former Trump campaign manager and New Hampshire resident Corey Lewandowski.
According to the New York Post, a source familiar with the matter said that there is a strong likelihood that Matt Mowers will seek to challenge Pappas again in 2022.
Leavitt believes that if elected, she can offer a counterpoint to the radical message of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She wants to fight against the brainwashing of her generation who have been steeped in radical left ideology by social media, higher education, and Hollywood.
“My generation needs to know that socialism does not work,” Leavitt said “It will cripple our economy and will make all of us dependent on the government.”
