EMILY’s List, which funds Democratic women who support abortion rights, bet big on 5th Congressional District candidate Elizabeth Esty.
The group raised $186,932.28 for Esty’s campaign and on Tuesday, it congratluated her on her win over Republican state Sen. Andrew Roraback. ”
“Elizabeth Esty is an outstanding progressive leader with a sterling record of public service,” said EMILY’s LIst President Stephanie Schriock. “This election provided a clear choice between leaders like Elizabeth Esty who want to move forward by expanding opportunities for women and families, and those who would roll back the clock by blocking access to reproductive healthcare and equal pay….EMILY’s List was proud to help Elizabeth Esty through competitive primary and general elections, and we are thrilled that she will now join other outstanding pro-choice Democratic women in the House to end the Republican War on Women.”
