BOSTON – The Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus (MWPC) Political Action Committee (PAC) today, July 29, announced re-endorsements for women legislators seeking re-election across Massachusetts.
These endorsements come as even more women are seeking the support of the MWPC, whose mission is to “recruit, train and elect” women to political office, said the press release.
This year’s re-endorsements include races for Constitutional Office, State Representative, State Senate and District Attorney.
“We are pleased to re-endorse a group of terrific women candidates who have demonstrated time and again how committed they are to making positive changes in districts across Massachusetts,” said Laurie Martinelli, MWPC Executive Director. “These tried and tested politicians have made great strides to ensure women’s reproductive rights, advocate for paid family leave, and they serve as wonderful role models for first-time candidates seeking office alongside them.”
Among the endorses were:
United States Congress: Ayanna Pressley (MA 7th Congressional District)
Senators to the Massachusetts General Court: Harriette Chandler (1st Worcester District), Patricia Jehlen (2nd Middlesex District), and Rebecca Rausch (Norfolk, Bristol, Middlesex District)
State Representative Maria Robinson (6th Middlesex District) Robinson represents a majority of the City of Framingham. She is running unopposed for re-election. She originally won the seat, after Rep. Chris Walsh died.
The Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus Political Action Committee (PAC) is a non-partisan organization that recruits, trains and elects qualified women to achieve political parity by increasing the number of pro-choice women elected and appointed to public office and public policy positions, as well as increasing the involvement of women of all ages in the political process.
