EMILYs List Congratulates Kathy Hochul on Her Re-Election Victory for Lieutenant Governor of New York
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated EMILYs List candidate Kathy Hochul on being re-elected as lieutenant governor of New York. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“EMILYs List is thrilled to congratulate Kathy Hochul on her victory tonight as she is re-elected to serve as lieutenant governor of New York. Kathy’s proven track record of public service, as a local government official, New York congresswoman, and now as lieutenant governor, is a testament to her dedication to her community. With her re-election victory tonight, Kathy will continue to fight for working families and champion opportunity for all New Yorkers.”
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $500 million to support pro-choice Democratic women candidates – making them one of the most successful political organizations ever. Our grassroots community of over five million members helps Democratic women wage competitive campaigns – and win. We recruit and train candidates, support strong campaigns, research the issues that impact women and families, and turn out women voters. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect 116 women to the House, 23 to the Senate, 12 governors, and over 800 to state and local office. Forty percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Since the 2016 election, thousands of women and counting have reached out to us about running for office. To harness this energy, EMILYs List has launched Run to Win, an unprecedented effort to get more women to run at the local, state, and national levels.
