EMILYs List Endorses Dina Titus For Reelection
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed Dina Titus for reelection to Congress to represent Nevada’s First congressional district. Laphonza Butler, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“Congresswoman Dina Titus has a storied career of public service, advocacy, and legislative leadership, and EMILYs List is proud to stand with her as she gears up for a competitive reelection campaign. A leading voice on gun violence prevention, comprehensive immigration reform, infrastructure, and climate change mitigation, Congresswoman Titus has always worked to improve the lives of Nevadans. We are confident that Congresswoman Titus’ constituents have recognized her steadfast dedication, and that they will vote to reelect her in 2022.”
Dina Titus grew up in Tifton, Georgia before attending the College of William and Mary, the University of Georgia for her Master’s degree, and Florida State University for her Doctorate. In 1988, she was elected to the Nevada State Senate and served as the minority leader from 1993 to 2008. She also taught American and Nevada government classes from 1979 to 2011 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Titus is serving her sixth term in the U.S House of Representatives, where she sits on the Transportation and Infrastructure, Foreign Affairs, and Homeland Security committees.
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, 159 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and more than 1,300 women to state and local office. More than 40% 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.
