EMILYs List Congratulates Kate Gallego on Her Reelection as Phoenix Mayor
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tonight, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated Kate Gallego on being reelected as Phoenix mayor. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“Congratulations to Mayor Kate Gallego on her reelection. Time and again, Kate has proven her commitment to Phoenix. Whether she is investing in the city’s infrastructure, fighting for quality public schools, or pushing back on Governor Ducey’s reckless policies in order to keep Arizonans safe during COVID-19, Kate is a leader who always puts people before politics. A mother of a young son, she will continue to fight for mothers and working families as well as a strong economy for future generations. EMILYs List is proud to continue supporting Kate, and we look forward to all that she will accomplish in her next term.”
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.
