EMILYs List Congratulates Kate Marshall on Her Victory for Lieutenant Governor of Nevada
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulated Kate Marshall on being elected lieutenant governor of Nevada. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“EMILYs List is proud to congratulate Lieutenant Governor-elect Kate Marshall on her victory as she becomes Nevada’s first Latina lieutenant governor. An attorney, former state treasurer, and longtime public servant, Kate has served her community by taking on big corporations, working to save taxpayer dollars, and pushing to improve state government. As lieutenant governor, Kate will continue fighting to uplift Nevada’s working families and ensure all Nevadans have an equal opportunity to succeed.”
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.
