From Emily's List -- May 25, 2011:
What an incredible win! EMILY's List candidate Kathy Hochul achieved a spectacular victory last night in the special election in New York's 26th district. Despite conventional wisdom that the district was too Republican and unwinnable, we were there with her from the beginning until the last vote was counted and that once-Republican House seat was hers.
Between your support and Kathy's tireless campaigning, we now have a pro-choice Democratic woman in a House seat that once belonged to a GOP Young Gun. And, believe me, Republicans are petrified about what this means: that voters are saying NO to the GOP plan to gut Medicare, and NO to the Republican bait-and-switch agenda that ignores creating jobs and instead Wages War on Women.
