EMILYs List Congratulates Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney on Her Re-Election Victory in New York’s 12th Congressional District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated EMILYs List candidate Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney on being re-elected to represent New York’s 12th Congressional District in the U.S. House. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“Congresswoman Maloney is a proven champion for New York families, and tonight’s victory shows that voters stand with her. She has been a staunch advocate for affordable health care and a fierce supporter of survivors of sexual assault. Her work is more important now than ever before, as the Trump administration seeks to advance its dangerous agenda. EMILYs List is proud to stand with Congresswoman Maloney and we congratulate her on tonight’s re-election victory.”
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $500 million to support pro-choice Democratic women candidates – making them one of the most successful political organizations ever. Our grassroots community of over five million members helps Democratic women wage competitive campaigns – and win. We recruit and train candidates, support strong campaigns, research the issues that impact women and families, and turn out women voters. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect 116 women to the House, 23 to the Senate, 12 governors, and over 800 to state and local office. Forty percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Since the 2016 election, thousands of women and counting have reached out to us about running for office. To harness this energy, EMILYs List has launched Run to Win, an unprecedented effort to get more women to run at the local, state, and national levels.
