Five New Women Candidates Endorsed By EMILY’s List

Five New Women Candidates Endorsed By EMILY’s List

EMILY’s List, the women’s political action group that focuses on getting pro-choice women elected to public office, has announced another five women that they will be assisting in the 2012 election.

Shelley Adler (NJ-03), Kathy Boockvar (PA-08), Julia Brownley (CA-26), Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01), and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ-09) are the newest additions to the EMILY’s List endorsement list, and although they are all in districts that lean Republican, the group hopes they will be integral at trending the House back in favor of a woman’s right to chose.

“This year is already shaping up to be an historic one for Democratic women in politics,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List, via statement. “We can take back the House in 2012 – and we can make Washington work for women and families – but only if we elect strong women like Shelley, Kathy, Julia, Carol, and Kyrsten who will stand up against the GOP’s radical anti-woman agenda and work to build a more progressive America.”

Two of the candidates — Adler and Boockvar, are both new candidates, as a small businesswoman and a lawyer respectively.  The other three have served in state or national capacities, but all face uphill battles in districts that are stacked against them.  Sinema and  Brownley are running in open seats, while Adler, Boockvar and Shea-Porter will be facing incumbent Republicans.

America is losing its moral compass thes last 8 years or so. We are borrowing more money than ever in history, to pay for people that are not working, because we have too many regulation, and not enough freedoms.

We have a Muslim President that just nominated a Muslim Brotherhood person to head our CIA, WHAT, impossible you say, but it is true. We just gave the Brotherhood, you know the people that say they will destroy America, 750 million dollars this past week. We have given weapons and amuninition to Al Quida making America the New Terrorist of the world, all thanks to Obama. Now, thank God, Hillary is going to write a tell all book, and Obama is threatening her with slander, I wonder why? He had our ambassador killed in Benghazi, and then had Hillary take all the blame for not providing security to our terrorist operation.
Wake up America, the work place sex is sick but minor compared to what is happening in our White House today.

Please do some research peeps. Hillary Clinton is a criminal. She is not a choice for any sort of candidate but for a prison sentence

Sometimes America is like Saudi arabia, you think thats some kind of victory? Then you have low standards. It should be at least 50% women. And in things that concern women, more than 50. Sometimes I can't tell whether it's Saudi or the US! You both have the death sentence, you all walk around with guns, both are hung up on sex, you don't like women or birth control or women in the workplace! You hate your 'minorities', your judicial system belongs in the middle ages. You tend to have religious extremists as leaders, both politics are influenced by the state religion. ...OWS and Tahir square have the same greviances, you lot need a revolution, an American spring, but if you ever tried to revolt, your government would be down on you so fast that the Arab countries would look on your government with admiration!

It is sad that there are voters that will vote for people that will kill unborn babies. I wonder if these killers ever thanked God that someone did not kill them in the womb. But of course that would not bother them as they are alive and they have the opportunity today of being able to do Obama's killing of babies for him.

These may be wonderfully good politicians, but if they are pro abortions they need to be kept off the Green Check. I apologize to any that are not pro abortion.

Yes!!!! Keep up the good work Emily's List.

I don't care if anyone wants to abort their own child. Do it with your dimes not mine. Have at it - destroy your own families. It is your choice and your decision to live with. Just do not ever ask me to pay for it as it is an elective procedure - totally your choice and totally your bill.

Lets get them in.

It is true,Steve R.,that in this case a more Progressive America will allow women more freedom for how each one of THEM will respond to a pregnancy,something neither you or I will ever experience.Hopefully it would give all women full access to contraceptives,the most effective means of reducing unwanted pregnancies and abortions.

Reckless spending,Steve R? The final cost of the Iraq war,begun by our very unprogressive previous president,and an unprogressive Congress-admittedly with the support of too many Democrats-will be $ 4 trillion.

Thanks for letting us know about these women. I hope they are voted in.
