EMILYs List Congratulates Madeleine Dean on Her Victory in Pennsylvania’s 4th Congressional District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated EMILYs List candidate Madeleine Dean on being elected to represent Pennsylvania’s 4th Congressional District in the U.S. House. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“Throughout her time serving in the state House, Madeleine Dean was a champion for progressive policies and worked to expand economic opportunity for hardworking Pennsylvania families. By electing Madeleine tonight, Pennsylvania voters proved they are ready for new leadership and want pro-choice Democratic women representing them in Congress. EMILYs List is proud to congratulate Madeleine on tonight’s victory as she becomes the first Democratic woman to represent Pennsylvania’s 4th District.”
Women Vote, EMILY's List's independent expenditure arm, invested nearly $250,000 in a primary election independent expenditure.
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.
