EMILY's List Endorses Kate Marshall for Nevada Lieutenant Governor
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILY's List, the nation's largest resource for women in politics, announced their endorsement of Kate Marshall for Nevada lieutenant governor. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“Kate Marshall has always focused on helping hardworking Nevada families where it matters: the pocketbook. As Nevada’s senior deputy attorney general, she prosecuted white-collar crime and held big corporations accountable to protect jobs in the state. As state treasurer, she saved Nevada taxpayers millions of dollars and successfully managed the state’s investments during the economic downturn. And as a breast cancer survivor, Kate is committed to making sure every Nevada family has access to affordable, quality health care.”
“Now, Kate is running for lieutenant governor to continue her work responsibly managing taxpayer dollars and creating economic opportunity for Nevada families. We need more leaders like Kate, and EMILYs List is proud to support her run.”
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.
