Meghan Milloy’s mission is to get more Republican women in office. As co-founder and executive director of Republican Women for Progress, she believes that “democracy works better when it represents everyone,” and to her that means gender parity in both parties.

But while it’s her job to recruit, train and fundraise for female Republican candidates, she finds herself telling many women not to run — at least not this year.

“It’s a Catch-22 for us,” she explains. “A lot of good moderate Republican women who want to run for office, our advice is ‘You’re a good candidate, you would probably win in any other year, let’s wait.’”
