EMILY's List Endorses Carolyn Maloney for Re-Election in New York's 12th District

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed Carolyn Maloney for re-election in New York’s 12th District. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:

“Throughout her time in Congress, Carolyn Maloney has proven to be the champion that the people of New York’s 12th District deserve. Not only has she fought to protect working families, but as a member of the Pro-Choice Caucus, Carolyn has dedicated her career to protecting women and their right to reproductive health care. Her strong and consistent record, chock-full of progressive legislative accomplishments, speaks for itself.

“Carolyn's leadership has earned her the praise of her constituents and colleagues, and she is a voice that needs to continue to be heard in Washington. She is a fighter who stands up to Republicans and puts her constituents first. EMILYs List is proud to support her for re-election.”

Carolyn Maloney was first elected to Congress in 1992, where she’s consistently ranked as one of the top producers of legislation, either as stand-alone bills or incorporated into larger legislation packages. She is a national leader with accomplishments on security, financial services, the economy and women's issues, from securing health care for those suffering from ailments related to 9/11 to authoring the Credit Cardholders’ Bill of Rights, which, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), has saved consumers more than $16 billion annually since it was signed into law in 2009. Carolyn is consistently ranked as one of the most effective leaders in the House of Representatives: In 2013, she introduced the fifth highest number of bills of all representatives, and in 2015, the bills she authored had 1,202 co-sponsors — the second most in all of Congress.

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.
