Elected in 2006, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is the first Republican woman to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Minnesota. Her strong advocacy for her constituents earned her a second term in Congress in November 2008. Prior to serving in the U.S. Congress, Bachmann served in the Minnesota State Senate. Congresswoman Bachmann is a graduate of Anoka High School and Winona State University. Bachmann and her husband, Marcus, live in Stillwater. The Bachmanns have five children and have opened their home to 23 foster children.
Jenaye White is a senior in high school and hopes to study communications and law in college. She enjoys playing the piano and guitar and works as an intern at her local Republican campaign office. She started a Generation Joshua club in her area 4 years ago, and now serves as its vice president. Jenaye lives in Paducah, Kentucky, with her parents, Jeremy and Sharon, and her sister, Jaclyn.
Nikki Georgacakis is a proud graduate of Patrick Henry College. Growing up, she enjoyed a mixture of private, Christian school education and homeschooling, and she credits both her parents, as sincere and active Christians, as well as her dedicated high school and college professors, for her desire to take part in the American political process. She has a passion for the conservative movement and hopes to continue to work to advance this cause.
