23 states have never had a woman governor.
Patricia, Get this: Twenty-three states have never had a woman governor. The numbers for the Senate aren't much better: Twenty-one states have never had a woman as their U.S. senator. Vermont and Mississippi have never sent a woman to Congress AT ALL. The first women to serve in these roles are out there -- and our Run to Win program is working to find them. Want to help jump start this task? Donate to help find and train the next class of barrier-breakers: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170424_email_RtWHelpFindHer Since the 2016 election, more than 12,000 women have reached out to EMILY's List to learn more about running for office. That's a testament to the energy, determination, and resistance we've seen from day one of Donald Trump's presidency. And that's the energy we need to build on until women represent us across all levels of government.

[House] 23 seats we could flip
Patricia, This number is the key to flipping top House seats next year: 23. That's how many congressional districts ✓ went blue in the 2016 presidential election ✓ but are currently represented by a Republican. And this is where they are: FL, CA, VA, MN, CO, IL, AZ, NY, TX, WA, PA, KS, NJ. Now's the time to recruit and train candidates in these districts and build strong campaigns.

2 House seats we MUST defend >>
Patricia, Last year, they flipped House seats from red to blue. This year, our women are hard at work: Stephanie Murphy is a first-generation American who has led the efforts to kick Steve Bannon off the National Security Council. She also called out Trump for his discriminatory refugee orders. Jacky Rosen is a former computer programmer and a member of her local Culinary Workers Union. She stood up for Planned Parenthood and introduced a bill to restore privacy protections destroyed by Trump. Imagine if these seats were still held by the GOP!

[GA-06] 26 more House seats we're watching >>
Patricia, BIG news from Georgia: Last night, in a special election to fill a Republican House seat, Democrat Jon Ossoff received 48% of the vote -- just two points away from winning the race outright. He's now in a runoff to ultimately decide who wins the seat. Democrats from around the country have been pouring resources into this race: making calls, sending money, and even showing up to knock doors in the district. THAT's how fired up Democrats are. If our party can pull this off in Georgia, then our chances of flipping a lot of House seats will shoot up. Right now, there are 26 congressional districts that are even bluer than GA-06 but currently represented by a Republican. And we want to target as many of them as possible. As Georgia has shown us, we can do big things when we have the resources to back up candidates who are ready to run. Donate $3 now so we can recruit more pro-choice Democratic candidates to turn red House seats blue: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170419_email_GA-06RapidResponse Thanks, Lucinda Guinn Vice President of Campaigns, EMILY's List

Little money. BIG difference.
Patricia, When Wisconsin enacted its 20-week abortion ban, it passed the state Senate by just five votes. Arizona's state Senate passed a bill limiting health insurance coverage for abortion by just five votes. And the Virginia state Senate passed a bill defunding Planned Parenthood by a one-vote margin. Right now, dozens of states are considering even more anti-choice legislation -- and whether these bills become law often comes down to just a handful of votes. Fortunately, more than 10,000 pro-choice Democratic women have signed up to run for office as part of our Run to Win program. If we can elect even 100 of them in key state legislatures, it could change the lives of millions of women -- really and truly. Donate today to change the tide and elect more pro-choice Democratic women than ever to state and local office: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170418_email_RtWstatelaws Our support for state and local candidates can make a big difference, especially when you consider that a lot of local elections are decided by a small number of votes. And on the local level, every dollar we raise goes further. Consider this: If you spend a little money in just the right spots with the right candidates, you can flip an ENTIRE state legislature. We've got the women who want to run. Now we need to build the programs to support them. Want to make a big political impact?

Last chance: Help re-elect our ⑨ Senate women
Patricia, Today is the final day in our week-long hustle to raise $100,000 to defend our nine Senate women who are up for re-election next year. 2018 is going to be a huge election year no matter what, and we'll be a big part of it. Midterm elections are typically good for the party not in power, but Republicans are ready to do everything they can to defeat our Senate champions. Today's the last day to hit our goal. Donate $3 to help defend our Senate women and grow their ranks in 2018: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170410_email_SenateGoal Republicans only have to defend a handful of Senate seats next year. Democrats have to defend more than 20, and nine of our 15 EMILY's List women are up for re-election. These senators have been doing everything they can to protect choice: fighting Republicans' shameful plan to take health insurance away from 24 million Americans and unanimously voting no on anti-choice Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch just last week. Now it's our turn to defend these pro-choice champions.

The resistance: Outside and inside >>
Patricia, Every political movement needs pressure from the outside AND the inside. The resistance is no different. And our EMILY's List women in the Senate have been keeping up the pressure. From rallying and marching across the country to unanimously voting against anti-choice Judge Neil Gorsuch to reading the words of Coretta Scott King on the Senate floor -- even when Republicans tried to stop them. Nine out of 15 of our EMILY's List senators are up for re-election next year. And we NEED to keep them there, because we have four long years of Trump to go. Keep our resistance allies in the Senate.

9 out of 15
Patricia, Next year is going to test our strength as a political force, and we're going to be ready for it. Out of the 33 Senate seats up in 2018, 23 are held by Democrats. At EMILY's List, 9 out of our 15 senators will be up for re-election. This is the biggest re-election map we've EVER had to defend. And Republicans are eager to oust our women who've been a united front against Donald Trump and his Republican allies. We've set an ambitious goal of $100,000 by the end of the week to make sure our nine EMILY's List senators can defend their seats. Donate to hit our goal and have their backs: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170410_email_SenateGoal Next year is even more of an uphill climb considering that three of our senators -- Tammy Baldwin (WI), Debbie Stabenow (MI), and Claire McCaskill (MO) -- are up for re-election in states Trump won. In Minnesota, where Amy Klobuchar is from, Trump only lost by 1.5 percent. And with so few seats to defend, Republicans are going to have more resources to spend challenging Maria Cantwell (WA), Dianne Feinstein (CA), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Mazie Hirono (HI), and Elizabeth Warren (MA). Defending these seats won't be easy, but here's the thing: The resistance is already fired up for the midterm elections. If we channel this energy into making sure we protect our Senate champions, we can hold the line. That work starts with making sure our senators have the early money they need to run strong campaigns.

Here's why: "He didn't offer any assurances in his hearing that he'll protect women's access to health care." -- Tammy Baldwin (WI) "Too many times, his narrow interpretations led to decisions that were on the side of big corporations and against the side of the little guy." -- Mazie Hirono (HI) These women are fighting for us in the Senate, and NINE are up for re-election next year.

Planned Parenthood and Betsy DeVos >>
Patricia, One. More. Vote. That's how close the Senate got to stopping Republicans' latest attack on choice last week. On a split vote to allow states to block federal funding to health care clinics that perform abortions, Senator Mitch McConnell had to bring Vice President Mike Pence in to break the tie. The final count was 51-50. Moments like this are why electing pro-choice Democratic women is so important. When protecting or destroying choice comes down to the margins, we need to elect women at all levels of government who will always fight for what's right -- and change the outcomes. Donate today to elect women who will always make the difference: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170405_email_PP This isn't the first time Vice President Pence has been a tiebreaker. He also broke the Senate deadlock on the nomination of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, marking the first time in history that a vice president has been called to break a tie on a cabinet nomination. Enough with these close votes in the Senate -- let's start winning them. It starts with making sure Democrats don't lose an inch. And with NINE of our women in the Senate up for re-election next year, that won't be easy. We also need to try and flip at least one seat, and our best bet is Nevada -- which went blue last year. That's a tall order, but failure isn't an option if we want a Congress that will protect choice. EMILY's List women are a firewall in the Senate right now.

What's next might surprise us all
Patricia, Not much can surprise me. But when I heard that in just four months, over 10,000 women had reached out to EMILY's List about running for office, you could have knocked me over with a feather. That's a wave if ever there was one. And they don't come around often -- so I've been doing all I can to make sure we can meet the energy and enthusiasm of the women who are ready to put their names on a ballot. Right now that means making sure we have the resources to help these women run through our new program, Run to Win. Just like it took months of individual women reaching out for this to grow into a wave, every dollar you chip in builds up to fund the programs we need to recruit, train, and elect more pro-choice Democratic women than ever before. Movements are built by people taking small actions that add up to big change. Donate to be a part of the movement we're building right now: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170402_email_Ellen I've been lucky enough to be a part of a few political waves. There was 1992 -- the Year of the Woman. Women across the country were outraged by an all-male Senate panel's treatment of Anita Hill. So they started sending their money to EMILY's List, and they started running. We elected more women to Congress than ever before. In fact, we quintupled the number of Democratic women in the Senate that year. There was 2006, when the country was so frustrated with the Bush administration's incompetence that Democrats took back the House and installed the first woman speaker, Nancy Pelosi. And in 2012, we helped elect the first openly gay woman to the Senate and the second woman of color -- and both Tammy Baldwin and Mazie Hirono are up for re-election this year. Most of the time change happens bit by bit. Then, every few years, there's a chance to take a huge leap forward.
