WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed Julia Brownley for re-election in California’s 26th District. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List, released the following statement:
"Julia Brownley is the tireless advocate and leader that Ventura County women and families critically need fighting for them in Congress. Julia has a strong record of defending women's reproductive health care choices, pushing for equal pay for equal work, improving care for veterans, and creating more opportunities for middle-class families.”
“EMILY’s List was proud to endorse Julia’s initial run for Congress in 2012 and is proud to support her re-election this November.”
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.
