EMILYs List Congratulates Kathy Jennings on Her Victory for Attorney General of Delaware
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated EMILYs List candidate Kathy Jennings on being elected attorney general of Delaware. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“As Delaware's former state prosecutor and chief deputy attorney general, Kathy Jennings has been a longtime ally for Delaware’s women and working families. As attorney general, Kathy will be tireless in her fight to combat the greatest issues facing Delaware, including Donald Trump’s dangerous agenda, gun violence, and the opioid epidemic. EMILYs List is thrilled to congratulate her on tonight’s victory as she becomes Delaware’s first Democratic woman attorney general.”
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.
