EMILY’s List Congratulates Cary Kennedy on Winning Colorado Caucus
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, released the following statement congratulating Cary Kennedy on winning the Colorado caucus.
“The EMILY’s List community is thrilled to congratulate Cary Kennedy on her well-deserved Colorado caucus victory that puts her in a strong position heading into the primary,” said Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List.
“Whether it’s fighting for good jobs, strong public schools, and economic opportunity for all Coloradans, Cary Kennedy is a fierce progressive champion with a strong record of standing up for her beloved state. EMILY’s List was proud to stand with Cary early in the primary and we know that she is the strongest candidate to continue building on Colorado’s progress as the state’s next governor.”
EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $500 million to support pro-choice Democratic women candidates – making them one of the most successful political organizations ever. Our grassroots community of over five million members helps Democratic women wage competitive campaigns – and win. We recruit and train candidates, support strong campaigns, research the issues that impact women and families, and turn out women voters. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect 116 women to the House, 23 to the Senate, 12 governors, and over 800 to state and local office. Forty percent of the candidates EMILY’s List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Since the 2016 election, thousands of women and counting have reached out to us about running for office. To harness this energy, EMILY’s List has launched Run to Win, an unprecedented effort to get more women to run at the local, state, and national levels.
