WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Elect Democratic Women (EDW), the Congressional Member-led committee dedicated to electing Democratic women to Congress, announced its endorsement of Sarah Klee Hood for New York’s 22nd Congressional District.
“As a native central New Yorker, a veteran, and the daughter of union workers, Sarah knows firsthand what hard working families in central New York need and how to support the men and women who have served our country. As a mom raising two daughters, she has been a staunch advocate for women’s reproductive rights and works hard to build coalitions to get things done. Elect Democratic Women is proud to support Sarah in her campaign for NY-22 and we look forward to working with her to pass policies that uplift women and families for generations to come,” said Rep. Lois Frankel (D-FL), Chair of Elect Democratic Women.
“I am honored that my Congressional campaign has earned the endorsement of Elect Democratic Women. As a working mom raising two young daughters, I know the challenges that Central New Yorkers are facing when it comes to the daily cost of living. As an Air Force Officer and DeWitt Town Councilor, I have put country and community before party and self. In Congress, I will fight for women and families – protecting abortion rights and siding with workers against big corporations,” said Sarah Klee Hood.
Elect Democratic Women was formed in 2018 by Democratic Members of Congress with the purpose of electing more pro-choice Democratic women to Congress and higher office. We believe that democracy is best served by a diverse Congress that reflects the people they represent.
The Executive Board is made up of six sitting members of Congress: Chair Lois Frankel, Rep. Joyce Beatty, Rep. Julia Brownley, Rep. Chrissy Houlahan, Rep. Annie Kuster, and Rep. Norma Torres.
