The PA-8 Democratic candidate will receive the full support of the powerful political group.
“As a small business owner who grew up in a working family that struggled to make ends meet, Shaughnessy Naughton has what it takes to fight for economic policies that give all Pennsylvania families a fair shot,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. “In Congress, she’ll use her unique background as a scientist to stand up for women’s health and to hold Republicans accountable for their attacks on the environment. Pennsylvania’s Eighth District is one of the most competitive districts in the country, and the EMILY’s List community of over three million members is excited to have the opportunity to help a Democratic woman as dynamic as Shaughnessy win this open seat.”
EMILY’s List backs pro-choice Democratic female candidates around the country and is a critical source of funding for its endorsees.
