WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed 12 more women leaders for the Maine State Legislature. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List, released the following statement: 

“EMILY’s List is thrilled to endorse 12 phenomenal public servants and trailblazers for the Maine State Legislature. These women have dedicated their careers to investing in Maine’s future as teachers, environmental protection advocates, and farmers. In the State House and Senate, they will fight for more inclusive policies that emphasize equality, accessible health care, and protections for small business owners and working families. EMILY’s List is proud to stand with these community leaders and their campaigns to move Maine forward.”

EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $600 million to elect pro-choice Democratic women candidates. With a grassroots community of over five million members, EMILY's List helps Democratic women win competitive campaigns – across the country and up and down the ballot – by recruiting and training candidates, supporting strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect 150 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,100 women to state and local office. Nearly 40 percent of the candidates EMILY’s List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. During the historic 2017-2018 cycle, EMILY’s List raised a record-breaking $110 million and launched a record independent expenditure campaign. We helped elect 34 new women to the House, including 24 red-to-blue victories; enough seats to have delivered the U.S. House majority alone. Since the 2016 election, more than 50,000 women have reached out to EMILY's List about running for office laying the groundwork for the next decade of candidates for local, state, and national offices.
