Erika Harold, 13th Congressional District of Illinois

Illinois attorney and former Miss America Erika Harold is pro-life and opposes proposals to increase individual and corporate tax rates and efforts to encroach on the Second Amendment right to bear arms. If elected in 2014, Harold would become the first female African-American Republican to serve in Congress, or one of two if Mia Love, mayor of Sarasota Springs, Utah, also wins her bid.
