Women Vote Invests $1.2 Million Supporting Sen. Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILYs List Women Vote announced its first expenditure in New Hampshire’s Senate race. The ad, “Live”, will air in four markets across New Hampshire as well as on statewide satellite. EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler remarked on the importance of this investment with the following statement:
“Republicans in the Senate have put abortion on the ballot this year, and we know that a vote for Sen. Maggie Hassan’s opponent, Don Bolduc, is a vote for a national abortion ban. Sen. Hassan is a pro-choice champion who will continue to tirelessly advocate for justice, equity, and opportunity for every Granite Stater. EMILYs List is proud to stand with her in the fight for our fundamental freedom.”
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILYs List has raised over $700 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure campaigns for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country's first woman as vice president, 159 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,400 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
