EMILYs List Puts Marc Molinaro “On Notice”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, announced that it was placing Rep. Marc Molinaro (NY-19) “On Notice.” Molinaro 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:  

“In a move that puts him wildly out-of-step with the vast majority of New Yorkers and all Americans, Rep. Marc Molinaro has prioritized voting for anti-choice legislation during his first few weeks in Congress, including legislation that opens the door to criminal prosecution for doctors and spreads disinformation about reproductive health care. New York’s 19th Congressional District deserves better, and it represents a critical opportunity to flip a seat from red to blue and ensure that a true pro-choice champion is elected in Molinaro’s place.”

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.
