EMILYs List Endorses Ann McLane Kuster for Re-Election in New Hampshire's 2nd District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed Annie Kuster for re-election in New Hampshire's 2nd District. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“Annie Kuster is a fighter for women and families at a time when Granite Staters most critically need one. Her work to combat sexual harassment, prevent pay discrimination, and defend women's reproductive health care choices has helped to stave off some of Republicans' most dangerous positions from becoming law.
“Annie is a champion for her community and her voice must continue to be heard in Washington. EMILY's List encourages Granite State voters to enthusiastically re-elect Annie this November.”
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.
