EMILYs List Congratulates Nicole Galloway on Her Victory for State Auditor of Missouri
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated EMILYs List candidate Nicole Galloway on being elected Missouri state auditor. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“Nicole Galloway has proven to be an effective independent watchdog for the people of Missouri. In the three years since she was appointed Missouri’s state auditor, Nicole has uncovered millions in government waste and fraud, and has held the state accountable to the Missourians it represents. EMILYs List is proud to stand with Nicole as she once again takes on government mismanagement and ensures Missourians’ tax dollars are being spent wisely and responsibly.”
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.
