WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed women leaders for the Maryland state legislature and local public offices. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List, released the following statement:

“Whether it’s personally treating Marylanders struggling to access adequate health care, championing quality education, or tirelessly pushing for safer communities for all, these proven women leaders have devoted years of their lives to public service and improving their state. From Baltimore and Montgomery Counties to the state Senate, these pro-choice Democratic women have the experience and dedication it takes to tackle the challenges facing Maryland families. EMILY’s List is proud to endorse them.”

Vicki Almond (Baltimore County Executive)

Dana Beyer (SD-18)

EMILY’s 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 EMILY’s 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, EMILY’s List has launched Run to Win, an unprecedented effort to get more women to run at the local, state, and national levels.
