During her tenure, she participated in lobbying initiatives with the American Gaming Association (AGA) that laid the foundation for Mirage Resorts latest gaming properties, Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Mississippi.

McGlowan served as Director of Outreach for the Better America Foundation, an organization founded by Senator Bob Dole. She served as legislative/press aide to both Representative Roscoe Bartlett (R-6th Dist. Maryland), and Representative John Ensign (R-1st Dist. Nevada). She also served as publicist to Ensign's successful re-election campaign in 1996.[4]

From 1999 to 2005, McGlowan served as director of Government Affairs and Diversity Development for Chairman Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation. She was directly responsible for the development and implementation of aggressive diversity initiatives within the Fox Entertainment Group and its owned and operated interests.

McGlowan currently serves as a political and business analyst for both Fox News and Fox Business Network.

On February 8, 2010, McGlowan announced her candidacy for Congress in Mississippi's 1st congressional district to challenge incumbent Democrat Travis Childers.[7][8] She subsequently lost the Republican primary after coming in third place, garnering 15% of the vote.[9] She was the first black candidate as well as the first woman to run in Mississippi's 1st congressional district, and left the race stating: "We lost the battle but won the war. A milestone was achieved for others to follow."[10]

She subsequently returned to Fox News.[9]
