State and Local Candidates

Here are the candidates who are running strong campaigns at the state and local level in 2023 and 2024 and have earned the EMILY's List endorsement.

EMILY’s List recruits, trains and supports Democratic pro-choice women candidates at every level of the ballot. By helping to elect these women to office in 2023 and 2024, we’re not only building a farm team, but we’re also putting strong women in charge of decisions that affect women and families every day — from the legislators who write laws to the attorneys general who defend and enforce them to the secretaries of state who ensure access to the ballot.
