EMILYs List Women Lead Primary Fundraising in New Hampshire 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — All seven EMILYs List-endorsed state legislative candidates in New Hampshire significantly outraised their primary and Republican opponents in the lead up to the state primary on September 8. 

“EMILYs List is proud to stand with these phenomenal public servants in New Hampshire,” said Sarah Curmi, interim vice president of state and local campaigns at EMILYs List. “The latest fundraising numbers are further proof that voters want strong, pro-choice Democratic women leaders in office. We look forward to crossing the finish line with them in November.”

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $600 million to elect pro-choice Democratic women candidates. With a grassroots community of over five million members, EMILY's List helps Democratic women win competitive campaigns – across the country and up and down the ballot – by recruiting and training candidates, supporting strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect 150 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,100 women to state and local office. Nearly 40 percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. During the historic 2017-2018 cycle, EMILYs List raised a record-breaking $110 million and launched a record independent expenditure campaign. We helped elect 34 new women to the House, including 24 red-to-blue victories; enough seats to have delivered the U.S. House majority alone. Since the 2016 election, more than 55,000 women have reached out to EMILY's List about running for office laying the groundwork for the next decade of candidates for local, state, and national offices.
