EMILYs List Congratulates Nancy Guy on Her Victory in Virginia House District 83
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated Nancy Guy on her victory in Virginia’s 83rd House District. EMILYs List President Stephanie Schriock released the following statement:
“Congratulations to Nancy Guy on her victory in a crucial red to blue flip district. Nancy Guy is a dedicated leader who will stand up and fight to ensure every child in Virginia has access to a high-quality public education. Her years of service on school boards, PTAs, and a cooperative education program board prove her commitment to strengthening Virginia’s schools. EMILYs List looks forward to seeing all she accomplishes in Richmond.”
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 50,000 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.
