WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulates Jennifer Mandelbaum on her victory in the special election for New Hampshire’s state House Rockingham District 21. EMILYs List President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:

“Jennifer Mandelbaum’s experience as a public health policy expert and a community leader will make her an excellent and effective legislator, and EMILYs List is thrilled that the people of Rockingham District 21 have put their faith in her. Pro-choice champions like Mandelbaum are fighting back against New Hampshire Republicans’ radical agenda every day, and we know that she will stand up for all Granite Staters’ rights.”

Jennifer Mandelbaum is a public health professional, health policy ambassador, and a member of the Portsmouth Public Library’s board of trustees. In the state House, she has pledged to support legislation that codifies the right to abortion and to focus on affordable housing, reproductive rights, climate change, expanding green jobs, and climate and infrastructural resilience. Mandelbaum grew up in Londonderry, New Hampshire and now resides in downtown Portsmouth.

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 $850 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 operations 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, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 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.
