For candidates in close races, there's nothing quite like knowing EMILY's List has your back.
I should know: My campaign for the Senate in 2016 was considered a toss up right up until Election Day.
But this community tirelessly supported me every day of the campaign, through my debate and the relentless attack ads — and that support was key to my victory. It also helped make me the first-ever Latina to sit in the U.S. Senate and the first woman elected to represent the state of Nevada in the Senate.
Next year, EMILY's List expects to support hundreds of candidates up and down the ballot. All of those women will need you behind them just like you were behind me.

I may be the first Latina in the Senate, but I'm determined not to be the last.
Which is why I was so heartened on election night last year in Nevada to see the Nevada state Senate and Assembly turn blue, and for one lucky district to vote for an entire slate of EMILY's List women from the top of the ticket on down. And I'm thrilled to hear about the over 25,000 women who've reached out to EMILY's List in the last year about running for office.
I've always said that our government should be just as diverse as the people they represent. And if we want that to be the case, we have to help these women run and win.
That means making sure these women have the training and resources they need to build strong campaigns.
And we need to support them from the beginning right up until Election Day — just like you supported me every step of the way.

Thank you for all you do to help elect strong, progressive women.
¡La lucha sigue! The fight continues!
