EMILY's List Statement on Diane Mitsch Bush’s Victory in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated Diane Mitsch Bush on her primary election victory in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“EMILY's List is excited to congratulate Diane Mitsch Bush on tonight’s victory. Throughout her career, Diane has been an unwavering champion for Colorado’s working families. Diane now faces Congressman Scott Tipton, a Republican incumbent who is sorely out of touch with his constituents. We are proud to stand with Diane and we look forward to helping her flip this seat in November.”
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $500 million to support pro-choice Democratic women candidates – making them one of the most successful political organizations ever. Our grassroots community of over five million members helps Democratic women wage competitive campaigns – and win. We recruit and train candidates, support strong campaigns, research the issues that impact women and families, and turn out women voters. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect 116 women to the House, 23 to the Senate, 12 governors, and over 800 to state and local office. Forty percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Since the 2016 election, thousands of women and counting have reached out to us about running for office. To harness this energy, EMILYs List has launched Run to Win, an unprecedented effort to get more women to run at the local, state, and national levels.
