EMILYs List Congratulates Senator Dianne Feinstein on Her Re-election Victory in California
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated EMILYs List candidate Senator Dianne Feinstein on her re-election victory in California. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“Tonight, California voters made it clear that they want Senator Feinstein continuing to fight for them in the Senate. For over 20 years, Senator Feinstein has fought to defend women’s reproductive rights and protect working families — and she’s not backing down. Her victory tonight guarantees that Californians will continue to have a staunch ally and powerful force on the Judiciary Committee. Congratulations to Senator Feinstein for carrying yet another victory across the finish line.”
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.
