EMILYs List Congratulates Andrea Campbell on Victory in Massachusetts Attorney General Race
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulates Andrea Campbell on her election as Massachusetts attorney general and becoming the first Black woman elected to statewide office in Massachusetts. EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:
“EMILYs List congratulates pro-choice champion Andrea Campbell on her election as attorney general of Massachusetts. Campbell is a battle-tested advocate for the people of Massachusetts, and we are proud to stand by her as she continues fighting for justice and progress in the state.”
Former Boston City Council President Andrea Campbell is a dedicated fighter for equity and opportunity. Campbell persevered through tremendous challenges earlier in life, finding strength in her loving relatives, her community, and teachers who encouraged her, and later finding purpose by practicing law and through public service. She successfully ran for the Boston City Council in 2015, and was the first Black woman to become president after being unanimously elected in 2018.
EMILYs 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. EMILYs 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 EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
