I can recall writing a story about women being elected to new posts in government, and including a comment from her. She gave some candid advice to female candidates and officeholders: “Get in there and scrap.”
Mary Margaret Muehlhausen did, and if she were alive today, her advice to female candidates from both parties would be the same.
