Tahoe Candidates Supported by EMILY's List!

EMILY's List is a group that supports and raises money for Democratic female candidates who are pro-choice. They have been instrumental in helping elect Democratic women to local, statewide and federal office. Since, unfortunately, many female candidates used to have and still have problems raising money the aim of EMILY's List is to get behind candidates early on, oftentimes in the primaries. The akronym says it all: "Early Money is Like Yeast."

Today I'd like to focus on which Tahoe candidates EMILY's List already supports. In Nevada they got behind Dina Titus early on, surely helping her raising her the amounts necessary to win the primary. EMILY's List also supports Jill Derby for Congress, Catherine Cortez Masto for Attorney General and Kate Marshall for State Treasurer. Furthermore, EMILY's List supports the candidacy of Debra Bowen for Secretary of State in California.

You can help get these great women elected this November by either giving through EMILY's List, going to their respective homepages and find out there how to help or by contributing directly through the Turn Tahoe Blue ActBlue Page.
