EMILYs List Congratulates Molly Gray on Her Election as Vermont Lieutenant Governor
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated Molly Gray on being elected Vermont lieutenant governor. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY's List, released the following statement:
“EMILYs List is proud to congratulate Molly Gray on becoming Vermont’s next lieutenant governor. A lifelong Vermonter who has spent her career in public service, she will bring intellect, pragmatism, and bold leadership to the lieutenant governor’s office, while ensuring every Vermonter has a fair shot at success. Molly is committed to addressing racial and economic injustice, preserving the environment for future generations, and expanding access to broadband in rural communities. She is ready to meet the biggest challenges of today head on, and we look forward to seeing Molly execute her vision for the future.”
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.
