She is a founding supporter of the African Leadership Academy.She has been speaking to job creators around the country about those things that as Republicans we can all agree on –

Republicans will seek to decentralize power--leaving decisions and money in the hands of states--better yet voters--rather than centralize it in Washington.

Republicans will put their faith in the individual’s ability to make better choices for their families and their businesses vs. Democrats who will focus on bigger government and government institutions to solve today’s challenges.

Republicans will trust private sector job creators over government agencies, tax dollar stimulus and regulation to make better decisions for our economy and ultimately create sustainable jobs.
