EMILYs List Congratulates Elaine Marshall on Her Reelection as North Carolina Secretary of State
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tonight, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated Elaine Marshall on winning reelection as North Carolina secretary of state. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY's List, released the following statement:
“Elaine Marshall is a trailblazing leader who made history as the first woman to win statewide office in North Carolina, and we’re thrilled that she has won another term as secretary of state. Throughout her tenure, Elaine has worked to make state government more efficient and transparent, expand equal opportunity, and protect North Carolina consumers and investors from fraud. Her leadership remains an inspiration to us all at EMILYs List, and we were proud to stand with her through another election cycle.”
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $600 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 strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect 150 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,100 women to state and local office. Nearly 40 percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. During the historic 2017-2018 cycle, EMILYs List raised a record-breaking $110 million and launched a record independent expenditure campaign. We helped elect 34 new women to the House, including 24 red-to-blue victories; enough seats to have delivered the U.S. House majority alone. Since the 2016 election, more than 60,000 women have 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.
