Dear Senator Heitkamp,

Thank you for your pledge to vote for the confirmation of Gina Haspel as the director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Concerned Women for America (CWA) and CWA of North Dakota are grateful for your willingness to thoroughly review Ms. Haspel’s qualifications to serve Americans in this capacity.  I appreciate your reply to my correspondence summarizing your concerns about preserving our nation’s core values.

We believe Gina Haspel’s 33 years of service at the CIA, and her current position of acting director of the agency, provides ample evidence that she is a strong women of integrity who has unquestionable qualifications to serve as our nation’s next CIA director.  Ms. Haspel has risen to the top of her field based on her credentials and hard work.

Thank you again, Sen. Heitkamp, for your willingness to support a nominee who will work to preserve our democratic values and keep North Dakota and all American families safe.

Sincerely,

Linda Thorson
State Director
