EMILYs List Endorses Congresswoman Haley Stevens for Reelection in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed Congresswoman Haley Stevens for reelection in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“EMILYs List is excited to support Congresswoman Haley Stevens, who has always kept the interests of Michiganders at heart and has helped expand job opportunities in her state. From working to assist saving the auto industry during the Obama administration to supporting unions and organized labor, Congresswoman Stevens has continuously taken the action necessary to protect Michigan’s blue-collar workers. We are proud to stand with her as she works to make Michigan as resilient as it can be.”
Haley Stevens is a leader in advanced manufacturing who served as a political appointee under President Obama, serving as chief of staff for the Treasury Department’s Auto Task Force and as a special advisor for the Department of Commerce. She played a key role in restoring the financial stability of the auto industry and helped save thousands of Michigan jobs during the recession. Haley worked tirelessly to help set up federal offices that contributed to the creation of new jobs for hardworking Michiganders. Prior to serving in Congress, she led a national workforce development program and launched a STEM education initiative for middle and high school students. Born and raised in Oakland County, Haley is a proud resident of Rochester Hills.
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $700 million to elect Democratic pro-choice women candidates. With a grassroots community of over five million members, EMILY's List helps Democratic women win competitive campaigns – across the country and up and down the ballot – by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running nearly $50 million in independent expenditures in the last cycle alone, and turning out women voters and voters of color to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country's first woman as vice president, 157 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and more than 1,300 women to state and local office. More than 40 percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. After the 2016 election, more than 60,000 women reached out to EMILY's List about running for office laying the groundwork for the next decade of candidates for local, state, and national offices. In our effort to elect more women in offices across the country, we have created our Run to Win program, expanded our training program, including a Training Center online, and trained thousands of women.
