We’ve all heard about the record number of women running for office in this cycle. Now, let’s meet them: Beginning today WomenCount is rolling out a series of slates that feature the women challengers who will take back the House for Democrats in November.

First up, the top tier candidates on our Meet the Wave: The Hillary Effect slate, candidates who will go up against GOP incumbents in districts Hillary won in 2016. 

Help them win big in their primaries. Chip in $5 to each of them today:

  • Sarah Jacobs (CA 49: Darrell Issa is retiring), a nonprofit executive who worked in Obama’s state department and as a foreign policy advisor on Hillary’s 2016 campaign.
  • Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (Fla 26: incumbent Carlos Curbelo), an expert in healthcare policy who spearheaded an expansion of health education programs at Florida International University.
  • Katie Porter (CA 45: incumbent Mimi Walters), a tireless consumer advocate who was appointed by then-AG Kamala Harris to serve as California’s bank watchdog.
  • Dr. Kim Schrier (WA 8: David Reichert is retiring), a pediatrician with an undergraduate degree in astrophysics who was once voted “Best Pediatrician” in the Seattle area.
  • Dr. Mai-Khanh Tran (CA 39: Ed Royce is retiring), a pediatrician who came to the United States in 1975 as a refugee from Vietnam and has practiced medicine for the last 25 years.

These women have the experience and passion to lead our country in a new direction, away from the regressive policies of the current GOP majority.

But they have to flip the House first. Chip in $5 today to each of the women on our first Meet the Wave slate.

Next week: Meet the Wave, Part II.
