23-year-old Karoline Leavitt announced Tuesday her campaign for Congress in New Hampshire’s First Congressional district. Leavitt had served as Representative Elise Stefanik’s spokesperson prior to announcing her ambitious campaign.
Leavitt, an assistant Press Secretary in the Trump administration, was born and raised in New Hampshire. Her parents launched and grew multiple successful small businesses, where Karoline says she worked since she was young, earning grit in the process.
New Hampshire’s 1st district is contentious, to say the least. 2020’s margin of victory for incumbent Democrat Chris Pappas was just 1%. Pappas, who votes with Nancy Pelosi 99% of the time in Congress, is one of the GOP’s top targets in 2022.

If victorious, she would become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress; but Leavitt still has to fend off a handful of other Republican hopefuls.
