Endorsement Criteria

The Women’s Campaign Fund consists of a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization and a political action committee (PAC). The core criterion for candidate endorsement is a demonstrated commitment to common ground solutions. WCF is finalizing its criteria for the 2018 election cycle and expects to support women running for elected office in the United States who meet three criteria:

1. 50% Representation of Women in Elected Office!

The candidate commits to advancing the concept that women should hold elected office in equal numbers to men  nationwide.

2. Common Ground

The candidate commits to common sense and common good as the essential factors driving good governance and pledges to work to achieve common ground solutions when elected.

3. Viability for Election

The candidate shows the ability to work toward common ground and has the personal, professional, and political capabilities required to win the office and govern effectively.

With today’s intense political polarization, we believe common ground solutions are essential to advancing the common good. We also know that broadening the spectrum of women candidates can only benefit America.

Our endorsement process will be streamlined and rigorous. The WCF Board of Directors will oversee an effective process to implement these criteria and assess candidates. We look forward to endorsing candidates in 2018.
