Women’s Group Puts New Candidates on ‘List’

EMILY’s List awarded three more female House candidates its early seal of approval Monday.

The group put Democrats Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, Val Demings of Florida and Dina Titus of Nevada “On the List.”

EMILY’s List, a campaign organization devoted to electing Democratic women who favor abortion rights, uses the “On the List” designation to alert its donor community about promising candidates early in the cycle. But making the list does not amount to a full endorsement from the group.

“The entire EMILY’s List community is proud to support them as they stand up to the Republican’s war on women,” EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock said in a statement. “After the stunning victories by Kathy Hochul in New York and Janice Hahn in California, it’s clear Democratic women have the momentum and our members are more energized than ever to win back the House.”

The trio joins several other female candidates already “On the List,” including Lois Frankel in Florida’s 22nd district, Ann Kirkpatrick in Arizona’s 1st district, Ann McLane Kuster in New Hampshire’s 2nd district, Christie Vilsack in Iowa’s 4th district, Tarryl Clark in Minnesota’s 8th district, Kate Marshall in Nevada’s 2nd district and Elizabeth Etsy in Connecticut’s 5th district.
