EMILYs List Puts Five More House Republicans “On Notice” For Targeting Women’s Rights and Shortchanging Working Families
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, expanded its “On Notice” opposition program to include five more House Republicans. EMILYs List is calling out incumbent Republicans for their anti-woman and anti-family records and is working to flip governorships, congressional seats, and legislative chambers from red to blue by electing pro-choice Democratic women in the upcoming 2020 election.
“With just over four months until the general election, EMILYs List is expanding its On Notice program to include five House Republicans who have actively worked to impede progress and strip women of their fundamental rights. These members have cosponsored dangerous legislation, including the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, a desperate attempt by Republicans to instill fear and spread misinformation about abortion. From supporting a party pushing to repeal health care in the midst of a global pandemic to prioritizing big corporations over the small business owners they were elected to represent, it is clear that these Republicans must be voted out. EMILYs List is actively targeting these flippable districts. We look forward to replacing these members with pro-choice Democratic women who will serve as true champions for women and working families.”
The following Republicans are included in EMILYs List’s list of House targets. The full “On Notice” list, including Senate, statewide, and state legislative targets, can be found online here.
Rep. French Hill (AR-02)
Rep. Doug LaMalfa (CA-01)
Rep. Tom McClintock (CA-04)
Rep. Joe Wilson (SC-02)
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (TX-02)
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 55,000 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.
