Dubuque, IA – Today, EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, announced their endorsement of Abby Finkenauer’s campaign in Iowa’s First Congressional District.
EMILY’s List’s endorsement speaks volumes about the strength of our campaign and is a recognition of the hard work Abby has been putting into this race. This crucial early support will help boost our campaign as we begin to talk to voters across the First District. The expertise and support that EMILY’s List provides is unparalleled in Democratic politics, and we couldn’t be prouder to have them on our team.
Following the endorsement, Finkenauer said:
“I’m honored to earn the endorsement of EMILY’s List. This early endorsement recognizes my history of never backing down when Iowan’s need their voice heard and the hard work I’m putting in to take on an out of touch Freedom Caucus member like Rod Blum. I was born here in rural Iowa, raised here in a blue collar family, and built my life in Iowa, and for the past three years, I’ve been a fighter for working families in the State House. This endorsement, coupled with the support of over 20 local elected officials, labor leaders, and community leaders puts our campaign in a strong position to win this district back for hardworking Iowans who deserve to have a seat at the table in Washington, DC.”
