EMILY’s List Backs Hamos For Illinois Rep. Kirk’s Seat

Illinois state Rep. Julie Hamos, a candidate in the state’s 10th Congressional District, has drawn the support of EMILY’s List, the influential group that aids Democratic women candidates who support abortion rights.

A statement Tuesday from EMILY’s List president Ellen R. Malcolm said Hamos’ “record of advocating for Illinois women and families is second to none. We need her in Congress to continue that fight.”

The endorsement was expected. Hamos backs abortion rights and is the only woman in a Feb. 2 Democratic primary that includes Dan Seals, a business consultant who was the Democratic nominee for this seat in 2006 and 2008, and Elliot Richardson, a lawyer.
