Elect Democratic Women Raises More than $2 Million in the First Quarter of 2024

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Elect Democratic Women (EDW), the Congressional Member-led committee dedicated to electing more pro-choice Democratic women to Congress, announced that it raised over $2.14M in the first quarter of 2024—EDW’s highest first quarter fundraising since the PAC was formed in 2018. This is EDW’s fourth consecutive quarter of record-breaking fundraising and brings the PAC’s total cycle raise to over $7.35M, keeping EDW on track to far exceed its 2022 cycle fundraising.

“Republicans across the country are determined to strip women of their access to abortion care and they won’t stop there – IVF and contraception are at risk too if we don’t elect Democrats up and down the ballot this November. Elect Democratic Women’s record-breaking fundraising is a clear indication of where the voters stand. They are motivated to elect pro-choice Democratic women who will be champions for women’s reproductive rights and policies that uplift all women and families,” said Elect Democratic Women Chair, Representative Lois Frankel. “With voters this energized, and everything at stake, we can take the House majority, hold the Senate, re-elect President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, and secure women’s reproductive freedoms.”

So far this cycle, EDW has made 45 endorsements of Democratic women, including 15 incumbent Members in the most competitive districts and 30 candidates running for Congress and higher office across the country. The PAC has also made $1.12M worth of early investments including contributions to Members, candidates, the DCCC, and the Biden-Harris campaign. As we head toward November, EDW will continue to back strong women candidates and is excited to work with them to take back the House majority, hold the Senate, and re-elect President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.


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.
