EMILY’s List Puts 3 New Fantastic Women “On The List.”

Shenna Bellows

Candidate for U.S. Senate-Maine

For nearly a decade, Shenna Bellows has made protecting the civil rights of Maine women and families a priority. We need progressive leaders in the Senate who know how to break through partisan gridlock and get things done, and Shenna has a proven track record of doing just that. It’s time to give Mainers a leader who will put them first, and the EMILY’s List community – now more than three million members strong – is ready to send her to the United States Senate.

Kelly Westlund

Candidate for U.S. House-Wisconsin 7th District

Kelly Westlund is a strong progressive leader who has built a career fighting for positive change in her community. From supporting local farms and businesses to improving sustainability, Kelly has tackled community issues with forward thinking solutions. She will be a fresh voice for women and families in Congress and the EMILY’s List community – now more than three million members strong – is excited to support her campaign.

Rocky Lara

Candidate for U.S. House-New Mexico 2nd District

Rocky Lara is a trailblazer who has always put New Mexico women and families first. As an attorney who has fought to protect children and assist women in the workplace, and as a leader invested in expanding economic opportunity, Rocky understands the issues that are important to her community. We need her in Congress, and the EMILY’s List community of more than three million members is thrilled to support her campaign.

ICYMI: Allyson Schwartz is ready to smash the all-boys club in Harrisburg. #PAGov #PApolitics

Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly made some pretty backwards comments about women and equal pay, saying it would prevent women from finding a “suitable mate.” Our Communications Director Jess McIntosh appeared on msnbc’s The Last Word to talk about the latest GOP outreach to women.

EMILY’s List Candidates Named Big Winners in 2014’s 1st Quarter Fundraising Cycle

EMILY’s List candidates were named among The Fix’s winners in the first quarter fundraising cycle! Check out what they said below:

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) ($2.7 million), Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) ($2.8 million) and Georgia Democrat Michelle Nunn (D) ($2.4 million) were Senate standouts once again. Grimes outraised Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for the second time, and Hagan and Nunn far outpaced their opponents as well.

Lesser-known candidates backed by the women’s group also did well. Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice (D) brought in almost $1.5 million in her bid for the seat of retiring Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.); attorney Gwen Graham (D) nearly matched Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Fla.); and underdog West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant (D) kept it close against Senate frontrunner Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.).

Some of EMILY’s List’s success lies in aligning itself with capable fundraisers. But the organization has made a mark, too. Bundled donations and PAC checks from the group to its endorsed candidates total $5.5 million so far this election cycle.

Because We’re Happy: Mary Burke Edition #WIgov

Pharrell made us happy when he went on Ellen and talked about ending gender discrimination in pay. You know what else makes us happy? Mary Burke running for governor against Scott Walker in Wisconsin. Here’s why. Go ahead, clap along.

Clap along if you feel like a woman gov is overdue

Because We’re Happy: Mary Burke Edition #WIgov

If elected, Mary Burke would be Wisconsin’s first woman governor!

Clap along if you think health care should belong to you

Because We’re Happy: Mary Burke Edition #WIgov

Mary Burke supports women making their own health care decisions. She has said, “ I believe very strongly that women should have the freedom to make their own health care choices and what the governor has done is roll back Wisconsin many, many years.”

Clap along if you know that jobs are what you value

Because We’re Happy: Mary Burke Edition #WIgov

Mary Burke isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes in. In 2013, Mary Burke cast the only opposing vote to the Madison School District’s preliminary budget. “The superintendent is on the right track and I’m impressed by the progress she has made, but given the projected cut in state funding and the increase in the local tax levy, I don’t think this budget meets that test of balance,” she said.

Clap along if woman businesses are what you’re into

Because We’re Happy: Mary Burke Edition #WIgov

As Wisconsin Secretary of Commerce, Mary Burke encouraged women business owners to apply for an awards competition that would help women grow their business and provide them with mentoring, financing, business operations and marketing resources.

Clap along if your community matters to you

Because We’re Happy: Mary Burke Edition #WIgov

Clap along if you think education needs overview

Because We’re Happy: Mary Burke Edition #WIgov

Mary Burke is committed to making sure students will succeed. She co-founded the AVID/TOPs program, a public-private partnership that is narrowing the achievement gap for low income students.

Clap along if you think lower health costs are a breakthrough

Because We’re Happy: Mary Burke Edition #WIgov

Mary Burke would help make health care more affordable for tens of thousands of people in Wisconsin. She has pledged to reverse Scott Walker’s decision to turn down $119 million to expand Medicaid. “It defies common sense that we would turn down $120 million that frankly is the money of Wisconsin taxpayers. Federal money is our money and we should make sure we are getting our share of it. This is making health care more affordable for tens of thousands of people in Wisconsin.”

Clap along if Wisconsin industries should be renewed

Because We’re Happy: Mary Burke Edition #WIgov

Mary Burke encourages growth in core industries, education and small businesses.

Clap along if the minimum wage really needs rescue

Because We’re Happy: Mary Burke Edition #WIgov
