PLAINFIELD, N.H. – Virginia Drye says she’s frustrated – that people like her aren’t represented in her state’s legislature.
“I’m 19. I’m a Republican and a woman,” the Plainfield, N.H., resident told Fox News. “There’s no representation of that in my district.”
The article goes on to state the following:
So Drye’s taking action. She filed her candidacy on Wednesday for state representative. And the bid to boost Republican women’s representation in Concord is a family affair – her mother Margaret is running in an overlapping district for the New Hampshire House as well.
Mother-daughter duos in the legislature are rare. If they both win, Margaret and Virginia Drye will be the first mother and daughter serving at the State House at the same time in 16 years.
According to the elder Drye, the duo is trying to “remedy” the sparse number of Republican women in the legislature “by leading by example.”
