•  In the News


To wrap up this month, we’re excited to announce victories for women in every race featured on our 2024 May Primaries slate!

The big news, of course, is Angela Alsobrooks’ US Senate win in Maryland. But we’re also celebrating: 

  • Sarah Elfreth’s win in safe-D MD-3; 
  • April McClain-Delaney’s win in Rep. David Trone’s safe MD-6 seat; and
  • Janelle Bynum’s win in OR-5, a flippable toss up in the general election.

These wins will go a long way toward maintaining women’s representation in Congress, as all three Maryland seats are currently held by men. While it’s still too soon to say whether we’ll see a net loss of women this cycle, current wins, losses, and other departures suggest that in a best-case scenario, we barely maintain our current level of representation. 

June will be another big month for women in competitive primaries in three states. Please support all of these candidates ASAP.

NJ-3, Safe D, Open:  The June 4 primary to fill this seat vacated by Rep. Andy Kim, who’s running for US Senate, is a competitive two-person race between state Reps. Carol Murphy and Herb Conaway. 

VA-7, Lean D, Open:  Prince William County Supervisor Margaret Franklin, former state Delegate Elizabeth Guzmán, and current Delegate Briana Sewell are all viable in this crowded June 18 primary to replace Rep. Abigail Spanberger, who’s running for governor. However, former NSC advisor Yevgeny Vindman is beating them all in fundraising and endorsements, meaning this is another woman-held seat we risk losing.

VA-10, Lean D, Open:  Former Rep. (and Virginia’s first female House Speaker) Eileen Filler-Corn is the leading woman among more than a dozen candidates running to replace retiring US Rep. Jennifer Wexton. 

NY-22, Toss-Up, Challenger:  DeWitt town board member Sarah Klee Hood narrowly lost the primary for this district last cycle. Her main opponent is state Sen. John Mannion. The winner on June 25 will face freshman Republican Rep. Brandon Williams.

Women must win everywhere if we want to even maintain our current representation in Congress. Help them win in these four districts—give now.
