EMILY’s List en­dorsed Rep. Michelle Lu­jan Grisham (D) on Tues­day.

EMILY’s List Pres­id­ent Stephanie Schriock: “Michelle is a proven fight­er for chil­dren, fam­il­ies, small busi­ness own­ers, and seni­or cit­izens and will en­sure they have a cham­pi­on in the gov­ernor’s of­fice. … There are cur­rently only two pro-choice Demo­crat­ic wo­men gov­ernors in of­fice, and no state has ever elec­ted a Demo­crat­ic wo­man of col­or to serve as gov­ernor. Michelle is poised to make his­tory as the first.” (re­lease)
