EMILY's List backs Hochul

Though two high-profile women are competing in the special election for the the 26th Congressional District, there is now no question about support from one of the nation's premier female-oriented poltical organizations -- EMILY"s list.

The Washington-based organization that supports women candidates is backing Democrat Kathy Hochul over Republican Jane Corwin and Tea candidate Jack Davis.

“Kathy Hochul is an uncompromising leader and a fiscal watchdog who’s spent her career fighting for the families of Erie County –- putting aside politics as usual to fight for the jobs that families need,” said Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List. “Kathy’s brand of smart innovation has repeatedly cut costs, eliminated red tape, and streamlined services for taxpayers and small businesses.

"In a special election where millionaire opponents could split the vote, Kathy’s strong candidacy gives Democrats an excellent opportunity to take back a GOP-held seat, " she added. "A tireless public servant, Kathy always stands up for what she believes in and we are proud to put the support of the EMILY’s List community behind her.”

Backing from EMILY's List could mean substantial financial and organizational support for Hochul's campaign.
