Candidate endorsements for the NWPC is a tiered process. The national board screens and endorses candidates for federal level offices, with the input of the local and state organizations. Statewide candidates are screened and endorsed by state boards. State senate, state representative, and local candidates are screened and endorsed by local caucuses within their geographic areas. The state board may elect to screen and endorse candidates in areas where there is no local caucus.
The GKCWPC because of its unique position, straddling the Missouri and Kansas state line, screens and endorses local candidates in the greater metropolitan area encompassing both Kansas and Missouri. Because there is no Kansas State NWPC-affiliated organization, the GKCWPC also performs the screening for Kansas candidates running statewide in addition to the local candidates.
We endorse women candidates in primary and general elections through screening committees, GKCWPC Board and membership votes. We utilize the following considerations.
If you are interested in learning more about the endorsement process, running for office, or volunteering for a candidate,
