We received this update from Melissa Fox this morning:
“Iâ€™m very proud and grateful to be able to share with you that California List has officially endorsed by candidacy for the California Assembly for the 70th Assembly District.
California List works to help Democratic women incumbents facing tough re-elections, recruits strong candidates to run for promising open or viable seats, and connects candidates and donors throughout California.
In addition to the California List endorsement, I am also proud to have received the endorsements of the non-partisan National Womenâ€™s Political Caucus and the non-partisan Women in Leadership.
Each of these groups understand that it is especially important now, as the economic crisis has unleashed a backlash against the hard-fought legal, political, and economic gains that women have made, to elect women who are committed to fighting for reproductive rights, heath care, equal pay and equal rights.
The California List endorsement is also a recognition that this race is winnable, with your help. If you have not already done so, I hope you will join our campaign, and make a contribution, in whatever amount, so that I can fight for our values in the California Assembly.
