EMILYs List Congratulates Haley Stevens on Her Reelection to Michigan’s 11th Congressional District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulates Haley Stevens on her reelection to Michigan’s 11th Congressional District. EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:
“Rep. Haley Stevens has been a groundbreaker from the beginning of her time in office, becoming the first woman to represent Michigan’s 11th Congressional District. She has continued breaking barriers since then, and has fought for the rights of Michiganders during a time when radical anti-choice extremists have attempted to strip reproductive freedom from Americans by any means necessary. EMILYs List knows that Stevens has what it takes to continue to protect those freedoms, and we are thrilled to congratulate her on her reelection today.”
Haley Stevens is a leader in advanced manufacturing who served as a political appointee under President Obama, serving as chief of staff for the Treasury Department’s Auto Task Force and as a special advisor for the Department of Commerce. She played a key role in restoring the financial stability of the auto industry and helped save thousands of Michigan jobs during the recession. Stevens worked tirelessly to help set up federal offices that contributed to the creation of new jobs for hardworking Michiganders. Prior to serving in Congress, she led a national workforce development program and launched a STEM education initiative for middle and high school students. Born and raised in Oakland County, Stevens is a proud resident of Rochester Hills.
Women Vote, EMILY's List's independent expenditure arm, invested $3.2 million in the primary election in a television and digital program communicating Stevens’ record of being a champion for Michigan women.
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.
