WASHINGTON, D.C. – Dozens of Republican elected officials, including several freshman
congresswomen, briefed more than 150 Republican women leaders from across the country during the National Federation of Republican Women’s (NFRW) biennial Legislative Day at the U.S. Capitol over the weekend. 
Chatham residents Laura Ali and Helena Ali represented the Morris County Women's Republican Club. 
Dressed in the traditional garb of red jackets, the “red coats” heard from more than 30 Republican
representatives and senators, including new Congresswomen Barbara Comstock (VA), Martha 
McSally (AZ), Elise Stefanik (NY) and Mimi Walters (CA), as well as House Republican Conference 
Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA), House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (LA) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL), the first Latina elected to Congress. Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (TX) updated the group on his bill, the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act, which initially had bipartisan support but is now being filibustered by Senate Democrats.

Several other senators also addressed the group, including Joni Ernst (IA), Roy Blunt (MO),  2016 presidential candidate Ted Cruz (TX), Jeff Flake (AZ), Lindsey Graham (SC), Chuck Grassley (IA), John McCain (AZ), Ben Sasse (NE) and Thom Tillis (NC). 
The entire Republican delegation from Arizona was on hand to welcome the NFRW to Phoenix this fall for the 38th Biennial Convention and Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus and Co-Chair Sharon Day stressed the importance of the 2016 presidential election.
Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization recruits and elects Republican candidates, advocates the GOP’s philosophy and initiatives, and empowers women in the political process.
