EMILYs List Welcomes Dean Heller Home to Nevada with Digital Ad Buy Aimed at Independents

August 7, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, announced a digital ad buy to welcome “Deciding Vote Dean” back to his home state. Ads will target independents and aim to educate voters on Heller's health care record. 

“Nevadans deserve to know the truth about Dean Heller,” said EMILY's List Executive Director Emily Cain. “EMILY's List wants to educate his constituents about his history of voting to undermine birth control access, end Planned Parenthood funding, and rip health care away from millions of Americans.”

The ads will be featured on Facebook and Instagram with an initial four-digit buy. 

​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 help more women run and win at the local, state, and national levels.
