November 14, 2023


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed eight Democratic pro-choice women for reelection to Minnesota’s state House. EMILYs List President Interim President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:

“Thanks to the strong leadership of Democratic pro-choice champions, Minnesota has remained a haven of reproductive freedom during an era in which extremist Republicans have done everything in their power to roll back our rights. These eight women have stood at the forefront of that battle, and have spent their time in the legislature fighting for Minnesotans to have access to the health care they need. EMILYs List is proud to endorse them for reelection, and we look forward to seeing all they will be able to accomplish for their communities in their next terms.”

EMILYs List endorsed the following slate of candidates for reelection:
