A Political Awakening

After graduating from college, Fritsch wanted to increase awareness of conservative values among Black and Latino women. She began writing articles, which led to talk radio and as people started to take notice, she became more politically active. When Mitt Romney lost the 2012 presidential election, she saw an even greater need for the GOP to expand its base.
