CHANTILLY, Va. -- Community leader Karrie Delaney today picked up the endorsement of EMILY's List, the nation's largest resource for women in politics, to represent Virginia's 67th House District, which stretches from Chantilly and South Riding to Fair Lakes and Oakton.
“Karrie Delaney is a proven leader who has committed her life to public service and finding innovative solutions for real people,” stated Geri Prado, the senior director of state and local campaigns at EMILY's List. "We are excited to endorse Karrie because she is dedicated to defending a woman's right to make her own health care decisions, fighting for all women to receive equal pay for equal work, and ensuring everyone has access to affordable health care."
"I am thrilled to win the endorsement of EMILY's List," said Delaney. "Everyday I talk to voters on the campaign trail, I hear their desire to elect Delegates that will be a voice for them. I'm running to be an advocate for people and rise about the political games in Richmond to find real solutions that improve the lives of women and families in Northern Virginia."
