WARSAW — The National Federation of Republican Women bus rolled into Warsaw today to encourage more women to register to vote. This stop was part of their nationwide campaign tour “Destination: White House.”
Women of this grassroots organization parked their bus named Rosie outside the courthouse and talked with curious onlookers about their organization’s goal to put a Republican in the White House and encourage more women to vote. Today, this group will visit six NFRW clubs in the state of Indiana. State NFRW President Suzanne Heizmann stated she wants to, “Motivate Hoosier women.”
Members of the NFRW have traveled almost three months, 10,000 miles, and through 22 states on their bus visiting local Republican women’s clubs and rallying communities to help a Republican become president and put Republicans in federal, state and local offices. The group began traveling in Iowa on May 9, of this year in order to make sure a Republican is put back in office this election.
The women want to continue driving the bus, rallying communities until the general election in November. The NFRW relies on donations in order to continue their trek across the United States Political Director, Terri Hauser says they will “Keep going until we run out of money or until November 7.” The trip is planned to end at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
70,000 women are involved in this organization nationwide according to NFRW President Carrie Almond. Almond named the bus they travel in Rosie in honor her grandmother Rosemary Ginn, who was appointed Ambassador to Luxembourg by President Gerald Ford.
