November 15, 2023


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

“EMILYs List is proud to endorse each of these women for election because they have demonstrated a commitment to fighting for abortion access, even in the face of a radical Republican state party committed to rolling back Arizonans’ fundamental rights. Arizonans deserve the freedom to make their own reproductive health care decisions, and it is critical that we elect these dedicated women to continue the hard work of making that freedom a reality.”

EMILYs List endorsed the following slate of candidates for election:

  • Judy Schwiebert, AZ-Senate LD02
  • Christine Marsh, AZ-Senate LD04
  • Laura Terech, AZ-House LD04
  • Eva Burch, AZ-Senate LD09
  • Lorena Austin, AZ-House LD09
  • Betty Villegas, AZ-House LD20
  • Quantá Crews, AZ-House LD26

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILYs List has raised $850 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure operations for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country’s first woman as vice president, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
