Caucus Endorses a Record 31 Women Candidates in 2018

The National Women’s Political Caucus of Metro St. Louis endorsed 25 women candidates in the 2018 – more than ever before! Thanks to funds raised at April’s Galvanizing Gutsy Women, EMPAC, the Caucus’ Political ActionCommittee, has contributed $16,450 to date to these candidates. In addition, EMPAC will do mailings to key voters for several endorsed candidates who only have primary opponents. More funds will be distributed following Missouri’s August 7th primary election.

The endorsement meeting was May17.  Earlier in the year, the Caucus gave early endorsements to six incumbents seeking re-election. In addition the Caucus endorsed Lauren Arthur (SD17) who won her Special Election on June 5.
