EMILY’s List Endorses 12 Women Leaders for Re-Election to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed 12 women leaders for re-election to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List, released the following statement:

“Pro-choice Democratic women have consistently made gains at all levels of state government, and in November, they will be instrumental in the fight to flip both chambers. EMILY’s List is thrilled to endorse these 12 women leaders who’ve continuously championed working families and blocked Republicans’ dangerous attempts to limit women’s reproductive freedom and challenge Roe v. Wade. Their critical work in Harrisburg will continue to make Pennsylvania a safer, fairer, and more prosperous state and we’re proud to stand with them in their bids for re-election.”

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.
