EMILYs List Congratulates Senator Elizabeth Warren on Her Re-Election Victory to the U.S. Senate
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated EMILYs List candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren on being re-elected to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“EMILYs List is proud to congratulate Senator Elizabeth Warren on her re-election to the U.S. Senate. As the first woman elected to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate, Senator Warren has been a passionate protector of middle-class families, and has worked tirelessly to hold Wall Street accountable. She is a strong progressive and a courageous leader who we know will continue to challenge the destructive policies of this White House.”
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.
