NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - House Speaker Beth Harwell will once again co-chair the Republican State Leadership Committee’s Right Women, Right Now initiative.

The committee announced the reappointment of the Nashville Republican this week.

Harwell will be joined by new co-chairs Iowa Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds and Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan.

In the 2013-2014 election cycle, Right Women, Right Now recruited hundreds of women nationwide to run for state-level office and elected 138 new Republican female candidates.

Since its creation in 2012, the group has elected 222 new female candidates to office.
