Jessica Taylor on Tuesday officially launched “NextGen Conservatives PAC” in an effort to elect the next generation of conservative leaders to important offices across the United States.
Taylor, a native of the Yellowhammer State, ran for the U.S. House of Representatives in Alabama’s Second Congressional District this past cycle, narrowly missing out on making the GOP primary runoff.
During that bid — her first time running for office — Taylor made national news when she co-founded the “Conservative Squad” to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her “Socialist Squad.”
A release on Tuesday outlined that as a freshman candidate, Taylor “realized the necessity of strength by numbers to combat the threat the far left poses to the very threads of our democracy.”
Her latest political action committee is designed to act further on this realization.
“After jumping into the political arena as a congressional candidate and co-founding the Conservative Squad, my campaign message grew into my mission – to elect a new generation of conservative leaders to office across America,” stated Taylor.
“NextGen Conservatives PAC will provide a voice and a platform for younger generations to learn about and embrace the conservative ideals that founded this country and continue to make it the greatest country in the world,” she continued. “We will support and amplify the voices of the next generation of conservative leaders and support them in their efforts to become elected leaders.”
The PAC’s website says the vision of NextGen Conservatives is: “To ensure a free and prosperous United States of America through new conservative leadership.”
Tuesday’s released advised, “The 2020 cycle was a resounding success for conservative women and the next generation of Republican leaders with every flipped seat in the House of Representatives going to a woman, minority, or veteran. NextGen Conservatives is capitalizing on that same momentum to ensure a conservative majority in the U.S. House in 2022.”
Candidates endorsed by NextGen Conservatives PAC will reportedly receive a direct financial contribution, fundraising support and additional support from the group’s independent expenditure arm. “Endorsed candidates are thoroughly vetted for their viability and strong conservative credentials,” the release added.
