TFRW Woman of Distinction – February 2020
Jody Rushton is our TFRW Woman of Distinction for February 2020.
Jody Rushton was born in McAllen, Texas, and she and her husband have lived all over the country. She says that “everywhere they moved her priorities were to find a church, a school, and a Republican Women’s club…not necessarily in that order!”
After volunteering on her first campaign for Reagan/Bush in 1984, she has been involved in too many campaigns to name, at all levels, both as a leader and as “just a volunteer”. She attended her first NFRW convention in 1983, and has been to at least six others. She’s been a delegate to every TFRW convention since 2005. She has been a member of her Republican Women’s club for more than twenty years, where she has served as President (more than once), and in many other roles.
She has been a delegate to every Republican Party of Texas Convention since 2002, and has also been a delegate and an alternate to the Republican National Conventions in 2012 and 2016. In 2016, she served on a Trump/Pence “Strike Force” for five months! Both her local party and the state party have honored her with their highest awards for her service.
She served TFRW as President. Most recently, she served as the President of the National Federation of Republican Women. Jody is a member of the Conner Harrington Republican Women’s Club.
