Capito, female colleagues invite U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team to meet during visit to Capitol

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito yesterday joined her female Senate colleagues to invite the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team to meet with the women of the Senate during the team’s upcoming visit to the Capitol. 

“We believe on a bipartisan basis that your model of unity, diversity, and passion should be something that is consistently celebrated and emulated,” the senators wrote. “In honor of your accomplishments, in recognition of your victory, and in acknowledgement of the work still before us, the bipartisan women of the Senate look forward to seeing you during your visit to the Capitol, and we would like to invite you to meet with the women of the Senate to discuss the challenges women face on and off the field.”

Dear Coach Ellis: 

Congratulations to you and your team for winning yet another World Cup Title for the United States this week at the 2019 World Cup Finals in France. Your impressive and dominating run through this year’s tournament is further testament to an already historic U.S. Women’s National Team program that has now recorded a record four World Cup trophies and back-to-back championships.  The entire country takes pride in all that you have accomplished.   

Your inspiring performance on and off the field serves as an example to Americans everywhere about the value of focus, conviction, hard work, and determination in our everyday lives. Millions of girls and boys throughout this country continue to look up to you as athletes, as icons, and as a stirring example of what is possible when a team of remarkable, resilient, and confident American women set out to accomplish a goal.    

We believe on a bipartisan basis that your model of unity, diversity, and passion should be something that is consistently celebrated and emulated. 

In honor of your accomplishments, in recognition of your victory, and in acknowledgement of the work still before us, the bipartisan women of the Senate look forward to seeing you during your visit to the Capitol, and we would like to invite you to meet with the women of the Senate to discuss the challenges women face on and off the field. We would be pleased to work with your staff on the most appropriate venue for this celebration and important discussion.
