Electing Women Bay Area hosts women candidates for President, US Senate, Governor, and competitive US House races in California.
We supported all four viable women who ran for President this cycle, raising over $550,000 for their campaigns. We were also thrilled to support the first women elected as Vice-President, our own Sen. Kamala Harris, and raised nearly $1.5m for the Biden-Harris ticket.
We were pleased to support Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (NH) and Tina Smith (MN) in their successful re-election campaigns. Although we are disappointed in the results, we were also proud to support the campaigns of Barbara Bollier (KS), Sara Gideon (ME), Theresa Greenfield (IA), MJ Hegar (TX), and Amy McGrath (KY) for US Senate and Nicole Galloway for Governor (MO) and Whitney Williams in her primary for Governor (MT).
We also supported Rep. Katie Porter (CA-45) early on in the cycle, Rep. Anna Eshoo in CA-18, and Christy Smith in the special and general election for CA-25. And we raised over $75,000 for down-ballot Black women running in California via Shirley’s List.
We helped support Cindy Axne, Abby Finkenauer, and Rita Hart to help boost Theresa Greenfield in Iowa and Wendy Davis and Gina Ortiz-Jones to help boost MJ Hegar in Texas.
EWBA raised over $1m for women running for US Senate, US House, and governor and over $2.5m total this cycle.
We look forward to supporting our incumbent US Senate women and women Governors in 2021 and hope to have many women to support in open and challenger seat races as well.
