FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
EMILYs List Puts David Schweikert “On Notice”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, announced that it was placing Rep. David Schweikert (AZ-01) “On Notice.”Schweikert 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. David Schweikert has amassed a strident anti-choice record during his time in office. He praised the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, supported Arizona’s abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest, and even cosponsored legislation that would ban birth control. And in the midst of trying to roll back our rights, Schweikert has been convicted of multiple House ethics violations, proving that he is not only out of touch with the vast majority of Americans, but calls into question his integrity. The people of Arizona’s 1st Congressional District deserve better.”
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.
