Feminist Women Are Winning! Help Shelley Madore Make it All The Way to Capitol Hill
Feminist Women Are Winning!
Help Shelley Madore Make it All The Way to Capitol Hill
In Tuesday night's Democratic primary, Minnesota voters cast their ballots for Shelley Madore in an upset victory, moving her one step closer to representing the state's 2nd Congressional District. Madore, who ran without the endorsement of the local Democratic Party, bested favored candidate Dan Powers. Help Shelley win in November!
NOW's Political Action Committee proudly endorsed Madore for office, and members of Minnesota NOW provided vital support. NOW wants to ensure that this sort of support continues. Help send Shelley to Capitol Hill!
Shelley told NOW: "I am proud to be endorsed by NOW and its supporters, who have worked long and hard for women's rights for more than 40 years. I appreciate their support and encouragement as I work to earn the privilege of representing our community's families in Congress."
Madore has been an ally to women in the Minnesota House of Representatives, working to address the inadequacies of health care coverage for women, along with the lack of job security and housing assistance. We need more women like Shelley on Capitol Hill. Help us elect Shelley Madore and other strong feminist leaders.
