Response from Voters in California's 49th District is Clear:  New “Let's Face It” Ad Effectively Highlights Clear Choice in This Election

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today voters in California's 49th District have responded to new ads from Women Vote, EMILY's List's independent expenditure, that urge voters to cast their ballot for Sara Jacobs on June 5th. 

“We've gotten a very positive response to one of the Women Vote ads highlighting the clear choice that voters of the 49th Congressional District will face on June 5th,” said EMILY's List Vice President of Communications Christina Reynolds. “Let's face it – Sara is the kind of fresh-faced leader we need in Congress who will fight for universal health care, equal pay, and against the NRA. The message in this ad is clearly resonating with men and women voters and should remain our focus.”

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.
