How to help elect more women for U.S. Senate
- by admin
With the midterm elections just a few weeks away, many Americans have been busy trying to put together their congressional districts and to determine which candidates stand out from the crowd.
While many have been happy to make a list of candidates for president, some Democrats are concerned about what could happen if the party loses a few seats, or if a particular candidate is unable to win a majority of the vote.
In a new poll, the political action committee Correct the Record released a list that included four women running for U: Sens.
Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D/D-N.Y.), Amy Klobuchar (D), and Tammy Duckworth (D).
The group also included Reps.
Barbara Lee (D) and Zoe Lofgren (D); and Reps.
Tammy Duckett (D-) and Keith Ellison (D): The list is a testament to the growing number of women running in the U.K. and elsewhere.
The poll shows that the number of Democratic women running nationwide has grown by more than 1 percent since last year.
Correct the Media is the largest progressive media organization in the country.
Its leaders include Stephanie Mancuso, who was elected to Congress in 2012 and is now an adviser to the Clinton campaign, and Stephanie Kamin, who is the executive director of Correct the Records.
The organization has endorsed many candidates in the past.
The goal of Correct The Record’s “Women for Congress” list is to raise awareness of the gender gap in elected office, particularly in U.D. The group’s founder and president, Jessica Lippman, is the daughter of former president Bill Clinton.
“Women don’t always have a voice,” Lippsman said in an interview with Bloomberg.
It’s just one more thing that’s going to make the gap that much smaller.”
