VA Republican could become First Female Marine elected to Congress


Her name is Aliscia Andrews and she's a Republican running for Congress in Virginia. She also happens to be a veteran who served in the United States Marine Corps. If she wins, she would become the first female Marine ever elected to the United States Congress, a moment in history just waiting to be made.

Andrews' battle at the ballot is in Vinrginia's 10th Congressional District and her main opponent is Rep. Jennifer Wexton, 51, a freshmen Congresswoman representing the Democratic Party.

Ryan Saavedra of the Daily Wire reports that Andrews is educated with "an MBA and Certificate in Cybersecurity Strategy Management from Georgetown" and that she "currently works with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as a contractor and focuses on issues related to securing America’s borders."

She appears ready to fight for the country more now than ever before. Her background, education, and experience make her a very well rounded candidate for Congress.

More information about Aliscia Andrews (Wiklow Majority):

Aliscia Andrews was born on Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, Virginia. She spent her early years traveling with her family while her father served honorably in the Air Force. She was active in the church, played sports, competed in pageants, and volunteered in her community. Her life changed forever in the fall of 2005, however, when a high school friend serving in the Army made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. His tragic loss planted the seed that would motivate her to become a Marine.

Her unit was rerouted to Haiti after the devastating earthquakes to provide Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief to the Haitian people. After leaving Haiti, Aliscia’s unit continued their deployment through Europe, the Horn of Africa, and the Middle East. Meeting, engaging, and working with the people of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East afforded her a unique appreciation and understanding of these countries, cultures, and their value to the United States at large.

She also posted this video back in November to give more information about herself.
