week in Review 11/10/2017
Refusing to remain silent and still, women are flexing their political muscle in new, energetic ways. A record number of women are running for every office across the country.
Voters elected history-making women to many offices Tuesday night, including the first transgender woman, the first female African-American lieutenant governor, Seattle's first lesbian mayor, and the first black woman mayor of Charlotte, N.C.
The countless hours women worked on the ground canvassing, phone banking, donating, and supporting women candidates made a difference. Women also voted in record numbers. All these things together lead to victory.
Tuesday night offered us a glimmer of hope, but not a sign that our job is done. The road to 2018 will not be easy. There are 23 Democratic Senators up for re-election. Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV), who is running for the Senate in Nevada, and Democrat Doug Jones, who is running in Alabama's special election next month, offer us excellent opportunities to gain Senate seats.
Jacky will be the first Jewish woman elected from Nevada and only the third Jewish woman in history to serve in the Senate.
Most candidates face opponents who will be funded with dark money and alt-Right resources. JAC candidates need your financial support.
Call the JAC office at 847-433-5999 to make a donation.
We have seen the power of women to make a difference. Together let's keep the momentum going.
