EMILYs List Congratulates Six Women on their Election to the Iowa Legislature

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulates six women on winning their election to the Iowa Legislature. EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:

“EMILYs List couldn’t be more thrilled to congratulate these women on their victories to the Iowa Legislature. Now more than ever, we need fierce leaders who will defend the reproductive freedoms of Iowans as anti-choice Republicans continue their attempts to restrict abortion care access across the state. We are proud to stand by these women as they fight for equality and seek reproductive justice for their constituents.”

EMILYs List congratulates the following candidates on their election and reelection in Iowa:

  • Sarah Trone Garriott (IA-SD14)

  • Mary Madison (IA-HD31)
  • Heather Matson (IA-HD42)

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILYs List has raised over $700 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure campaigns for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country's first woman as vice president, 159 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,400 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
