EMILY’s List released its endorsements in statewide races ahead of the August primaries.
Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List, said the group endorsed Democratic candidates who would expand access to health care and promote working families in Missouri.
“EMILY’s List is proud to endorse these outstanding public servants for legislative and statewide office in Missouri,” Schriock said.
“While Republicans have proven they lack the leadership skills necessary to prioritize the health and safety of all Missourians, these health care professionals, small business owners, teachers, and tireless activists are ready to take on the challenges their communities are facing,” she continued. “In office, these women will enact commonsense solutions to expand access to health care, support vulnerable communities, and protect working families. EMILY’s List looks forward to increasing the representation of pro-choice women in the General Assembly, and to electing more women statewide alongside gubernatorial candidate Nicole Galloway.”
