If you watch Fox News, you've probably seen Angela McGlowan giving her sassy, conservative opinion on any number of programs. McGlowan, who has done everything from start her own business to write a book, certainly doesn't hesitate to share her opinion and now she's taking her tenacity and strong will to Congress, or so she hopes. Earlier this year, McGlowan announced she's running for Congress in her home state of Mississippi. Here is a look at the woman who feels she's ready to fight for Mississippi's First Congressional District.
McGlowan says she's running for office because she's "fed up [but] will never give up." She describes herself as a "conservative, pro-life, pro-gun, pro-small business Mississippi Republican" and says she will "fight for North Mississippians like no one has ever fought for them before."
McGlowan was born in Oxford, Mississippi to James Thompson McGlowan, a minister, who she says installed a many important values in her, just before his death that occurred when she was just twelve years old. She was educated in the public school system and graduated from the University of Mississippi with a bachelor's degree in Public Administration, with an emphasis in Criminal Justice and Political Science.
She is the founder and CEO of Political Strategies and Insights, a government affairs, political strategy, public relations, and advocacy consulting firm based in Washington, DC. McGlowan served as the Director of Governmental Affairs and Diversity Development for News Corporation from 1999-2005, where she developed and implemented diversity initiatives. She also worked as a Congressional advocate on News Corp's behalf. Public service is not new to McGlowan. She served as the Director of Outreach for the Better America Foundation, an organization founded by Senator Bob Dole aimed at promoting community empowerment and helped set the stage for the Senator's 1996 presidential run.
McGlowan served as Government and Public Affairs Manger for Steve Winn of Mirage Resorts, Inc, where she lobbied initiatives with the American Gaming Association, in an effort to help start Mirage Resorts gaming properties at the Bellagio in Las Vegas and the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Mississippi. She also worked as an aide to Congressman Roscoe Bartlett of Maryland and Representative John Ensign of Nevada, as well as serving as a publicist for Ensign's 1996 re-election campaign.
Perhaps most people know McGlowan as a political analyst for the Fox News Channel. But she has quite the television career under her belt. She worked as a host for Good Day Street Talk for New York's' Fox 5 WNYW, and has appeared on several other shows and networks, including PBS's To the Contrary, America's Black Forum, BET Tonight, This is America with Dennis Wholey, and ABC's Politically Incorrect. A seasoned writer, McGlowan's work has appeared in the Washington Times, Clarion Ledger, Athens-Banner Herald, Oxford Eagle, American Newspaper, Ebony Magazine, Jet Magazine, the Washington Post, Insight Magazine, New York Magazine, and her book, BAMBOOZLED: How Americans Are Being Exploited by the Lies of the Liberal Agenda, was a national bestseller.
