A Lifelong Pennsylvanian Patriot

Ashley Ehasz is a lifelong Pennsylvanian, U.S. Army combat veteran, and former Apache helicopter pilot who serves as a government and public service sector consultant to help our leaders better deliver results for the Keystone State. Ehasz grew up in a working family that faced many challenges, including financial instability, and joined the U.S. Army after high school. After graduating from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, she went on to flight school and graduated in 2012 as the only woman in her Apache class. Ehasz served in multiple locations nationally and internationally, including in Iraq, before returning to her home state of Pennsylvania, and is now running to continue her service to her community in Congress. If elected, she would be the first woman in Congress to have graduated from West Point.

Fighting for Reproductive Freedom

Ehasz is ready to stand up to congressional Republicans who want to ban abortion not just for Pennsylvanians but for all Americans. “Reproductive freedom is a part of the Constitution that I went overseas to fight to protect,” she has said, “and it’s time we take action in Congress to ensure it is protected.” Ehasz is also committed to making health care more affordable, reducing gun violence, improving the American education system, and building a strong economy for all.

A Critical Red-to-Blue Flip Seat

Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District is currently represented by anti-choice Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, an extremist who started voting for anti-choice legislation as soon as he got into office and tried to strip reproductive health care coverage from the Affordable Care Act. Fitzpatrick is a certain vote for the radical Republican agenda to ban abortion nationwide — and we need a fearless leader like Ehasz to flip this seat from red to blue, take back the U.S. House for Democrats, and fight for our rights no matter what. Let’s show Ehasz the full support of the EMILYs List community and help her unseat Fitzpatrick in November.
