CHRIS BUBSER EARNS SUPPORT OF EMILY’S LIST IN CA-08 BID
Bubser’s Momentum Grows With Nod From Nation’s Largest Resource for Women in Politics
September 10, Victorville, CA -- The campaign of Chris Bubser announced today that the candidate has garnered the highly influential endorsement of Emily’s List, the largest national organization supporting women candidates. The endorsement reflects the organization's recognition that Chris Bubser is running a strong campaign to represent the needs of working families in a district where voter registration and demographics have shifted dramatically in recent years. CA-08 was recently designated a “Race to Watch” by Inside Elections.
Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List, released the following statement:
“EMILY’s List is thrilled to endorse Chris Bubser in California’s 8th Congressional District. Chris is a health care professional who spent decades helping launch groundbreaking treatments for patients with HIV and cancer. A mother whose own daughter has a preexisting condition, Chris understands the anxiety families face around securing quality, affordable health care. EMILY’s List is confident this innovative thinker will bring pragmatic and solutions-oriented leadership to Washington, and we look forward to helping her turn this seat blue in the fall.”
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Emily’s List,” said Bubser. “As a working mom I am deeply encouraged that an organization with such a rich history of championing women and change makers has decided to support my candidacy. Together we can protect coverage for pre-existing conditions, work to lower the price of prescription drugs, and get our economy back on track. Washington is broken, but today we are one step closer to bringing real representation to this community. I’m ready to fight to put people first, not corporate donors or party leaders.”
