EMILYs List Names 27 Republican House Targets for 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, expanded its opposition program, “On Notice,” to include 27 Republican incumbents in the House of Representatives. These House Republicans join nine Republican governors and three Republican senators as some of EMILYs List’s top targets to defeat in the 2022 election cycle. Emily Cain, executive director of EMILYs List, released the following statement:

“These 27 House Republicans have continuously prioritized an extreme, anti-woman, anti-family agenda at the expense of the people they were elected to serve. When faced with an unprecedented health crisis, these members all voted against the American Rescue Plan, which aimed to expand vaccine distribution, increase the child tax credit, reopen schools, and support the economy. They have abandoned the women and families in their districts in their unyielding attempts to restrict abortion access and defund Planned Parenthood, which millions of Americans depend on for life-saving medical care. It is clear that these House Republicans are actively impeding progress, and must be voted out. EMILYs List is actively targeting these flippable districts and we look forward to replacing each of these members with Democratic pro-choice women who will better the lives of their constituents.”

The 27 incumbent Representatives EMILYs List is targeting are:

  • David Schweikert (AZ-06)
  • David Valadao (CA-21)
  • Mike Garcia (CA-25)

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $700 million to elect Democratic pro-choice 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 and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running nearly $50 million in independent expenditures in the last cycle alone, and turning out women voters and voters of color to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country's first woman as vice president, 157 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and more than 1,300 women to state and local office. More than 40 percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. After the 2016 election, more than 60,000 women 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. In our effort to elect more women in offices across the country, we have created our Run to Win program, expanded our training program, including a Training Center online, and trained thousands of women.
