She joining me now welcome to Congresswoman Elect Victoria Spartz good morning good morning. Thank you for having me Ainsley good morning. You are welcome. Congratulations! Thank you Ainsley. What do you think led to so many republican women winning these house seats? Well, if you think about you know, like my district too right its really a snapshot of America, I have urban im, the mother of two daughters, im, a suburban woman. If you look at that im very hopeful to see that majority people in our country, dont believe in socialistic you topic ideas. The democratic party is now promoting, so women believe in the future of their children. They care about good economy, job education, public safety, having good healthcare,
and they trust that Republicans can deliver it so im very honored to see that, but that is you know that is a testament to that Ainsley. How did your background tell us a little bit about your background and how that shaped your political career? Well, I grew up in socialistic country. It actually was socialistic Republic of Ukraine. I see what happens when when it runs out of money, its not pretty. Now I came to America twenty years ago after meeting my husband in a train in Europe, and is he raised and born Hoosier, and now we are building full circles. Can I tell you whats going to be next very sad to see that, and that made me as a mother of two daughters, its made me get involved and do something about it because thats not very good for our country Ainsley. What do you say to the people who are more moderate Democrats or Republicans that
voted for Biden that say? Oh no thats so progressive? They are not going to do it. There is not going to be distribution of wealth or socialism. What do you say to those voters? I think we need to be good students of his. I history, our country for the last century, was fought against socialism and a lot of young kids died. I took my kids to the beaches of Normandy and can you see how many young kids died? Fighting for freedom, how many wars were fought and we won lets, look at any country that has socialism every country failed, because this system is not sustainable. This system create a lot of destruction and misery, so we have to be smarter than that. You know we are not going to change. You have freedom in free enterprise and system where government decides and political elites on top how we are going to live and what we are going to do. And you know if you think about it, we are not equal. We are all want different things.
We all want equal rights to pursue happiness. We want different things. You know we dont even want to go to travel to the same countries. The government forces us to be equal, you have so suppress, so every socialistic system is about suppression and we have to value our freedoms because we are the greatest republic that ever existed Ainsley. We wish you all the best. I know your two children are very proud of you. You beat Christina Hale, she got forty five point, nine percent of the votes and you got fifty point two and Susan Brooks held that seat. She is a Republican she retired. After four terms, God bless you. Thank you. So much.
