Because Democrats would have you believe that there are no women in the Republican party, we’ve decided to start profiling some of our party’s women right here on Conservative Island for you. We look forward to introducing you to some of the party’s up and commers over future blogs and today we’ve decided to kick off this new feature of our blog with one of the most interesting new Republican women we’ve discovered! Enjoy…
You are scratching your head now for sure, wondering if we have any alumni from the delightfully tacky yet unrefined restaurant chain that so many love to frequent.
We’ve teased you long enough, it’s Julia Hurley from Tennessee!

Julia Hurley credits Hooters with much of her success in politics, and climbing the ladder within the Republican party. “I have taken quite a bit of flack from the public at large during my run for State House in Tennessee for being a Hooters Girl,” she said. “But I know that without that time in my life I would not be as strong-willed and eager to become successful.”
Hurley now works as a consultant and entrepreneur. She is a Southern Baptist and a member of the National Rifle Association and the Gun Owners of America. Just another down home friendly southern girl, who loves guns and freedom! How can you not love her?
“I take the honor of serving in this state House more seriously than anything I have in my life,” she said. “I identify with every woman who has overcome the odds to realize their dream. My past shapes who I am today”, says Hurley about her new found political life.
About her time with Hooters, Julia Hurley remarks, “Hooters gave me the opportunity to belong to a group of women who had also struggled, or were struggling, and I was lucky to have managers that saw each girl’s potential and coached us, protected us, and helped shape who we are today,” she said.
It definitely seems more common to find young conservative women in the Republican party working their way up through waitressing jobs like this rather than Democrats. While the Dems might consider such work demeaning or objectifying women, the ladies on our side consider it a great opportunity. Having known a few Hooters girls myself, I know first hand that these girls can make as much as $500 per day in tips, and it’s a great job while putting yourself through college.
While the Democrats continue their record of judging, scoffing, and belittling Republican women — It’s important to support the ladies on our side, and make sure they feel welcome going forward. I’ve always said that Republican women are brighter, more confident, and downright sexier than Democrats — and Julia Hurley is further proof of that statement.
