EMILY’s List Congratulates 22 Women Elected to the Nevada State Legislature

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulates 22 EMILY's List-endorsed women on their victories in this general election. These candidates were critical in protecting the Democratic majority in both chambers and securing a supermajority in the Nevada Assembly. In 2019, Nevada made history with the first majority-woman legislature, which was protected in this midterm election. EMILY’s List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:
“We are thrilled to congratulate these 22 women on their election to the Nevada Legislature and we are confident they will continue to protect reproductive health care access for all. With the GOP continuously attacking people’s freedoms, it’s important we have pro-choice leaders leading the way for an equitable future for all. We look forward to seeing what more these Democratic pro-choice women will accomplish in office.”

EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILY’s List has raised over $700 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure campaigns for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country's first woman as vice president, 159 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,400 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILY’s List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
