Kris Kobach Joins Forces with Donald Trump Jr. on the Campaign Trail
Washington, D.C. — Kansas gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach will soon be campaigning with Donald Trump Jr. Christina Reynolds, EMILYs List vice president of communications, released the following statement in response:
“By choosing to campaign with Twitter troll, conspiracy theorist, and purveyor of white supremacist content Donald Trump Jr., Kris Kobach is telling Kansas voters exactly who he is. Luckily, Kansas families will have some real choices this election year, and EMILY's List is proud to stand with Laura Kelly.”
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.
