EMILYs List Congratulates Dina Titus on Her Reelection to Nevada’s 1st Congressional District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulates Dina Titus on her reelection to Nevada’s 1st Congressional District. EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:
“Rep. Dina Titus has been a stalwart force for justice for Nevadans, and EMILYs List is thrilled that she will be returning to Congress to defend reproductive freedom for residents of her state and all Americans for another term. Titus’ commitment to her constituents and to civil rights for all have made her a leader we can trust, and we know that she will continue to serve Nevadans with honor.”
Dina Titus was elected to the Nevada state Senate in 1988 and served as the minority leader from 1993 to 2008. She also taught American and Nevada government classes from 1979 to 2011 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Titus is serving her sixth term in the U.S House of Representatives, where she sits on the Transportation and Infrastructure, Foreign Affairs, and Homeland Security committees.
Women Vote, EMILY's List's independent expenditure arm, invested $100,000 in a joint Spanish language radio program with Somos Votantes that highlighted Titus’ opponent’s anti-choice and anti-education record.
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.
