31. Roberta Combs
Roberta Combs is the President and CEO of Christian Coalition and Christian Coalition of America. She has served as a founding member and has been the only woman on the board of directors for the Christian Coalition of America, which offers pro-family Americans a vehicle to policies that serve to strengthen and preserve, rather than threaten, our families and our values. Under Roberta’s leadership, the Christian Coalition of America has worked to provide education and political training to thousands of Christian activists around the country in order to challenge and equip individuals and churches to make a difference at all levels of government. Each election year, the Christian Coalition of America distributes tens of millions of non-partisan Voter Guides throughout all fifty states, (over 70,000,000 for the 2000 election alone). These guides help give voters a clear understanding of where candidates stand on important pro-family issues - before they go to the polls on Election Day. Roberta is credited with adding the voting records of politicians on votes concerning Israel to the voter guide allowing Christians across the US to see how politicians stand with Israel before they cast their votes.
