EMILYs List Puts George Santos “On Notice”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, announced that it was placing Rep. George Santos (NY-03) “On Notice.” Santos 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:

“There are innumerable reasons why Rep. George Santos should not be in office, from his dishonesty about his background to his campaign finance violations and beyond. Santos is also a virulent anti-choice extremist, even going so far as to say that he would support criminal penalties for doctors who provide reproductive health care. Santos cannot be trusted — to tell the truth or to defend our rights. That’s why we’re putting him On Notice, and that’s why we’re committed to replacing him when the time comes.”

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.
