EMILYs List Puts Anthony D’Esposito “On Notice”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, announced that it was placing Rep. Anthony D’Esposito (NY-04) “On Notice.” D’Esposito joins 22 other extremist anti-choice House Republicans as some of EMILYs List’s top targets to defeat in the 2024 election cycle. EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:

“Rep. Anthony D’Esposito will never be a legislator who truly represents the needs of the people of New York’s 4th Congressional District. Even though most New Yorkers support the right to abortion, D’Esposito said he was likely to support a national ban and accepted the endorsement of a right-wing extremist group that wants to ban abortion without exceptions for rape or incest. D’Esposito has also made some of his first acts in Congress voting for anti-choice bills, showing just how little he will do to defend our freedoms. For these reasons, we must absolutely vote him out in the next election.”

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.
