(KFTK) — In an open letter Tuesday, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announced her support for an organization focused on getting Republican women in federal offices to counter far-left ideologies like those propelled by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and others.

Winning for Women is a grassroots nonprofit that has a mission to identify and support "right-of-center" women leaders while they run for office.

"You may not hear much about them in the news, but Republican women are stepping up across the country to run for office," Haley wrote in an email to more than 600,000 members, according to Daily Wire. "From veterans and business owners, to doctors and lawyers — these women are smart, they are qualified, and they are standing up for politics that makes our country stronger."

"Without WFW PAC, we'll continue to see liberal women like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez elected to Congress, only to apologize for our American values and promote dangerous policies like socialism, Medicare for All, and the Green New Deal," she continued.

Haley blasted AOC in May when the radical congresswoman remained silent about Venezuela's political crisis and did not condemn dictator Nicolas Maduro's regime. 

"WFW PAC is fighting to send strong conservative women to Washington who will get things done," Haley’'s email continued. "It's more important than ever to support strong conservative women who will stand up for America and advocate for job growth, free markets, strong national defense, and border security."

Daily Wire reports that the 2018 midterm elections yielded 37 House seats for women — only two of whom are Republicans. Currently, only 13 female Republicans sit in the House.
