EMILYs List Endorses Two More Women Leaders for Reelection to the Massachusetts General Court
Today, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed two more women leaders for reelection to the Massachusetts General Court. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“EMILYs List is thrilled to endorse Becca Rausch and Tram Nguyen, two pro-choice champions, for reelection. Massachusetts has a long history of strong progressive women leaders, and these two women have proven track records of getting good things done for their communities. During their tenure in the Massachusetts General Court, they have broken barriers and served as outspoken advocates for reproductive justice and equality. EMILYs List is proud of all the work they have done, and we are eager to see what more they accomplish when they are reelected in November.”
EMILYs List endorsed the following women:
Becca Rausch (SD Norfolk, Bristol, and Middlesex District)
Tram Nguyen (HD 18th Essex District)
EMILY's List also previously endorsed Susan Moran (SD Plymouth & Barnstable District) for her upcoming special election.
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 50,000 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.
