The RMC is a national organization dedicated to promoting policies that limit the scope of government in American lives. A pro-choice organization, the RMC works with legislators to further access to reproductive choices, including abstinence education, contraception, motherhood, adoption and safe legal abortions. In the organization’s mission statement it states its goal is to bring Republican candidates to Capitol Hill to vote on “commonsense solutions.”
“Rath is a true fiscal conservative who understands that the government should pursue commonsense cost-effective policies while protecting the rights of individuals,” said RMC co-chair Susan Bevan. “These beliefs fortify her pro-choice position, believing individuals should enjoy the freedom to make vital family and medical decisions for themselves. And her emphasis on conservative fiscal policy lends to her appreciation for preventative health services that reduce long-term costs to the government, and more importantly to taxpayers.”
A newcomer to the political scene, Rath is critical of Democratic incumbent Bob Brady’s approach to education, job building and the economy. Rath seeks to provide better funding to schools, lower the unemployment rate, and reduce poverty in her district.
She faces an uphill, however, as PA-1 is rated D+28.
