EMILY’s List Endorses Six More Women Leaders for the Wisconsin State Assembly
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed six more women leaders for the Wisconsin State Assembly. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List, released the following statement:
“As Wisconsin Republicans continue to play politics during a global pandemic, EMILY's List is proud to endorse six women leaders who will prioritize the health and safety of Wisconsinites. As small business owners, teachers, physicians, and lawyers, they have a firsthand understanding of the challenges Wisconsin’s farmers, Native communities, and women face. In the State Assembly, EMILY’s List is confident that they will fight for a fair redistricting process in 2021 and we look forward to crossing the finish line with them in November.”
EMILY’s List endorsed the following women:
Kim Jensen (AD-01)
Deb Andraca (AD-23)
Lee Snodgrass (AD-57)
Emily Berge (AD-68)
Kristin Lyerly (AD-88)
Amanda WhiteEagle (AD-92)
These endorsements are in addition to three previously endorsed EMILY’s List candidates in Wisconsin: Patty Schachtner (SD-10), Robyn Vining (AD-14), and Beth Meyers (AD-74).
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 55,000 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.
