EMILY’s List Upgrades Kelda to Full Endorsement
The nations largest organization for women in politics puts full resources behind Kelda Helen Roys
MADISON, WI – EMILY’s List, the largest organization dedicated to electing pro-choice Democratic women and one of the most powerful grassroots organizations in politics, announced earlier today that they were upgrading their support of Kelda Helen Roys to their top-tier full endorsement. This endorsement continues EMILY’s List strong history of support of female candidates in the 2nd District, after they played a key role in helping elect Rep. Tammy Baldwin in the competitive 1998 Democratic primary.
The support of EMILY’s List brings enormous resources to bear on Roys’ campaign for Congress. It ensures access to one of the largest donor networks in the country, with over a million members committed to financially supporting pro-choice Democratic women. The endorsement also ensures continued professional support and advice from the world-class campaign professionals at EMILY’s List. Most importantly, it ensures that Roys will have the resources necessary to run a vigorous, winning campaign.
“I am extremely grateful for the confidence that EMILY’s List has in me and my ability to win this race. EMILY’s List’s full endorsement represents an important milestone in this race. This endorsement not only reflects their belief that I am the leader best able to stand up to Tea Party Republicans and their relentless assault on women. It also means that we have built a campaign organization that can and will win in August and November,” said Rep. Roys.
