FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
EMILYs List Puts Ashley Hinson “On Notice”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, announced that it was placing Rep. Ashley Hinson (IA-02) “On Notice.” Hinson 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. Ashley Hinson had a 100% anti-choice record when she was a member of the Iowa state House, and her crusade against reproductive freedom has continued as a member of the U.S. House. She has voted for numerous bills that would restrict access to abortion and open the door to retaliation against those who travel to other states for reproductive care, and she voted against the right to access contraceptives for all, including veterans. Hinson is dangerously out-of-touch with her constituents and will not stop doing everything in her power to roll back our rights until she is voted out of office.”
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.
