There are 29 Emerge alumnae on the ballot Tuesday, many of them in tough, tight races. They have used our training and network, and have built upon it from the lessons one inevitably learns on the campaign trail. They are running strong campaigns and—win or lose—each one of them will be an Emerge success story. Anytime a woman puts her name on the ballot, she puts herself on the front lines of our movement and helps push our democracy forward.  We are so proud of all of our candidates!!
