EMILYs List Congratulates Beth Wood on Her Reelection as North Carolina State Auditor
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated Beth Wood on winning reelection as North Carolina state auditor. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY's List, released the following statement:
“Congratulations to North Carolina State Auditor Beth Wood on her reelection. The first woman ever elected to serve in this important role, Beth has consistently delivered on her promises to protect taxpayers, bring accountability to the office, and root out government waste and abuse. Beth is a bold and tireless leader who has represented North Carolina well as state auditor, and EMILYs List is proud to have supported her bid for reelection.”
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $700 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 and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running nearly $50 million in independent expenditures in the last cycle alone, and turning out women voters and voters of color to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country's first woman as vice president, 157 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and more than 1,200 women to state and local office. More than 40 percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. After the 2016 election, more than 60,000 women 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. In our effort to elect more women in offices across the country, we have created our Run to Win program, expanded our training program, including a Training Center online, and trained thousands of women.
