PA-16: EMILY’s List Endorses Hartman
EMILY’s List– the nation’s largest resource for Democratic pro-choice female candidates- has declared that they will be endorsing Hartman.
The financial support of EMILY’s List could help Hartman narrow the fundraising advantage that Sen. Smucker currently holds.
“Christina Hartman has dedicated her life to community advocacy and protecting human rights.” said Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List. “Christina would be the first woman to represent Pennsylvania’s 16th District, in a state that currently does not have a single woman representing it in Congress. The EMILY’s List community, over three million members strong, is excited to support her historic candidacy.”
“Christina is honored to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with EMILY’s List’s three million members as we flip this seat from red to blue, regain the House and Senate, and win the White House this November,” her campaign responded.
As a result of incumbent Congressman Joe Pitts’ retirement, this opening represents the Democrats’ best opportunity to flip the Republican-leaning district since 1997.
The 16th Congressional District includes parts of the Berks, Chester, and Lancaster Counties.
