10 of our women WON last night! EMILY's LIST.

David,

I'm so proud: 10 of our pro-choice Democratic women on the ballot either won or advanced to a runoff!

Here are a few of the highlights:
  • We are one step closer to electing the first black woman governor EVER. Stacey Abrams — the first woman to win our Rising Star Award — won her primary for Georgia governor.
  • Also in Georgia, Carolyn Bourdeaux and Lucy McBath both advanced to run-off elections for their House seats. And all five of our state and local women won their races, including three who can flip seats in the state House.
  • Two of our House candidates in Texas won their run-off elections. Now Gina Ortiz Jones and Lizzie Pannill Fletcher have to pivot and turn these seats blue in November.
I hope you're excited about these wins, David. And fired up to win some more.

Because we have 44 women counting on our support to win their special and primary elections on June 5th.

Georgia and Texas are not easy states for Democrats to win in. But this is our year, and we've endorsed the best candidates to do it.

Just this past weekend, I had the privilege of spending time with Team Abrams in Georgia to help get out the vote. The energy was electric — people are excited about our candidates and all they stand for.

I am so proud of what this community and our women accomplished last night, and I can't wait to see what November brings.

But to get there, we need to send the same level of support we gave our women in Georgia and Texas to all of our candidates on the ballot this year.

Thanks — and go team!
