Patricia, You may have been asleep when I sent my last email, but here's what you need to know: It was a really, really good night for Democrats. And it was a GREAT night for pro-choice Democratic women. In Democrats' sweeping victory in Virginia, we flipped 11 House of Delegates seats with EMILY's List candidates. And we could still add more because Shelly Simonds' race is too close to call. Manka Dhingra, an immigrant and mental health advocate, won her special election in Washington State, successfully turning the state Senate there blue. And Deborah Gonzalez turned Georgia's state House District 117 blue, too! Across the country at the city, county, and state level, Democrats are still counting up our wins, many of them featuring history-making women, immigrants, people of color, and the LGBTQ community. We won these races because we put the resources behind our candidates to win. Donate $3 to help our women who are running in 2018 build strong campaigns that can win, too: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20171107_email_ElectionNightWins Thanks, Stephanie Schriock President, EMILY's List

Patricia,

Results are still coming in, but we Democrats have a LOT to celebrate tonight.

So far Democrats have:

  • Secured governorships in Virginia and New Jersey, including New Jersey Lieutenant Governor-elect Sheila Oliver
     
  • Elected at least 12 pro-choice Democratic women to the Virginia House of Delegates, including
    • Hala Ayala and Elizabeth Guzman, the FIRST Latinas elected to the House of Delegates
    • Danica Roem, the FIRST openly transgender person elected to the Virginia General Assembly
    • Kathy Tran, the FIRST Vietnamese American elected to the House of Delegates
       
  • Elected a historic number of women of color to the Boston City Council, including our endorsed candidates Lydia Edwards and Kim Janey

This is what happens when Democrats unite against hate. When we all put everything we have on the field, WE WIN.

This is just the beginning. I am so proud of our candidates who had the courage to run. I am so grateful to our partners who rallied to help these women win.

And I am so grateful to you, Patricia. These wins belong to the EMILY's List community, too.

If you want to keep winning in the months to come, donate $3 right now to help build MORE strong campaigns for pro-choice Democratic women:
