EMILYs List Puts Nick LaLota “On Notice”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, announced that it was placing Rep. Nick LaLota (NY-01) “On Notice.” LaLota 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:

“New Yorkers have long been united in their support of abortion access, but Rep. Nick LaLota is so out-of-touch that he’s voted for multiple anti-abortion measures in Congress, applauded the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, and supported policies that would harm vulnerable young pregnant people. Politicians who cannot be trusted to defend our rights cannot be allowed to remain in power, and we must vote LaLota out of office in 2024.”

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.
