EMILYs List Endorses Four More Women Leaders for New Hampshire State and Local Office
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed four more women leaders for New Hampshire state and local office. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“EMILYs List is thrilled to expand our endorsements in New Hampshire with four more phenomenal community leaders. As scientists, organizers, and lifelong public servants, these women will hold state Republicans accountable and fight for New Hampshire’s small businesses and working families. EMILYs List is committed to increasing the number of pro-choice Democratic women on the state and local level, and we are confident that these women are the pro-choice champions Granite Staters deserve.”
EMILYs List endorsed the following women:
Sue Ford (SD-01)
Jenn Alford-Teaster (SD-08)
Rebecca Perkins Kwoka (SD-21)
Deb Pignatelli (Executive Council, District 5)
These endorsements are in addition to four previously endorsed EMILYs List candidates in New Hampshire: Shannon Chandley (SD-11), Melanie Levesque (SD-12), Cindy Rosenwald (SD-13), and Donna Soucy (SD-18).
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $600 million to elect pro-choice Democratic 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 strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect 150 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,100 women to state and local office. Nearly 40 percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. During the historic 2017-2018 cycle, EMILYs List raised a record-breaking $110 million and launched a record independent expenditure campaign. We helped elect 34 new women to the House, including 24 red-to-blue victories; enough seats to have delivered the U.S. House majority alone. Since the 2016 election, more than 55,000 women have 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.
