EMILYs List Statement on Susan Wild’s Victory in Pennsylvania’s 7th District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated Susan Wild on tonight’s primary election victory in Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“Susan’s win is a victory for women and families in the 7th District. Her record of fighting for progressive values and supporting working families speaks for itself – and it’s what will further propel her to victory in November. EMILYs List has been and will continue to be with Susan every step of the way. We are proud to congratulate her on her victory tonight.”
During the primary, EMILYs List’s voter mobilization and education project, Women Vote, launched a direct mail and TV advertising program in support of Susan Wild.
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.
