EMILY’s List Puts Three More “On the List”
Second Round Supports Clark, Marshall, Esty
WASHINGTON, DC -- Today, EMILY's List puts three new candidates "On the List," the new way for EMILY's List members to engage with and support promising candidates even earlier in the election cycle.
"On the List" was created because of the dramatic growth in the EMILY's List community -- now over 900,000 members -- who are getting their information earlier, quicker and on the web. These supporters are ready to take action now and "On the List" makes sure candidates have early access to them.
Our second group of women join Lois Frankel (FL-22), Ann Kirkpatrck (AZ-01), Ann McLane Kuster (NH-02), and Christie Vilsack (IA-04) "On the List":
- Tarryl Clark (MN-08)
- Kate Marshall (NV-02)
- Elizabeth Esty (CT-05)
"The best way to beat the Republican war on women is to send more Democratic women to Congress," said EMILY's List President Stephanie Schriock. "Great candidates like Tarryl Clark, Kate Marshall and Elizabeth Esty are getting an early start on their 2012 campaigns and the EMILY's List community is proud to stand with them and put them 'On the List.' After the stunning upset win by Kathy Hochul in New York, our members are more energized than ever and eager to take back the House."
In the 2009-2010 cycle, EMILY's List raised more than $38.5 million to support its mission of recruiting and supporting women candidates, helping them build strong campaigns, and mobilizing women voters to turn out and vote. With a community of more than 900,000 members across the country, EMILY's List is one of the largest political action committees in the nation. Since its founding in 1985, EMILY's List has worked to elect 85 pro-choice Democratic women to the U.S. House, 16 to the U.S. Senate, nine governors, and hundreds of women to the state legislatures, state constitutional offices, and other key local offices. In the 2009-2010 cycle, EMILY's List had the largest number of members and donors in our 25 year history.
