EMILYs List Congratulates Suzan DelBene on Her Selection as Chair of DCCC

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today Rep. Suzan DelBene of Washington’s 1st Congressional District was selected by Rep. Hakeem Jeffries to be chair of the DCCC. EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:

“Congratulations to Rep. Suzan DelBene on her selection as the next chair of the DCCC. Throughout her career, DelBene has been a fearless champion of women and reproductive freedom and understands we must hit the ground running next cycle to continue protecting our rights. Our future will be in good hands under her leadership. EMILYs List was proud to stand with her when she was elected, and we look forward to working together to elect more Democratic pro-choice women all over the country.”

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, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 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.
