EMILYs List Puts Jen Kiggans “On Notice”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, announced that it was placing Rep. Jen Kiggans (VA-02) “On Notice.” Kiggans 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. Jen Kiggans doesn’t just want to restrict abortion — she wants to end it. That’s why she happily accepted the endorsement of the right-wing anti-choice extremist group Susan B. Anthony List, whose mission is to end abortion and destroy reproductive freedom. Kiggans has also voted for multiple anti-choice bills during her short time in Congress, and when millions across America were grieving the loss of their rights when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Kiggans said she ‘applauded’ the decision. Kiggans is out of touch and out of time — and in the next election, we will make sure our voices are heard loud and clear and vote her out.”

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.
