EMILYs List Congratulates Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy on Her Re-Election in Florida’s 7th Congressional District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated EMILYs List candidate Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy on being re-elected to represent Florida’s 7th Congressional District in the U.S. House. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy is a rising star in the Democratic Party — and for good reason. She has been an incredibly effective congresswoman, working across the aisle to deliver for her constituents. During her term in the U.S. House, Congresswoman Murphy has been a fighter for health care access, gun violence prevention, and job creation in her district. EMILYs List is thrilled to congratulate Congresswoman Murphy on tonight’s victory in this key battleground district.”
Women Vote, EMILY's List's independent expenditure arm, contributed $25,000 to House Majority PAC’s independent expenditure effort.
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.
