IA, OH: EMILY's List backs 2 'emerging' House candidates
Democrats Becky Greenwald of Iowa and Sharen Neuhardt of Ohio now have the backing of one of the largest political action committees in the nation. EMILY'S List, a PAC that helps to elect pro-choice Democratic women, today announced its endorsement of Greenwald, who's running against U.S. Rep. Tom Latham in Iowa's 4th Congressional District and Neuhardt, who's running against Republican Steve Austria in Ohio's 7th District. Neuhardt and Austria are competing to replace retiring GOP incumbent Dave Hobson.
"Hailing from the swing states of Iowa and Ohio, these exceptional candidates have the passion and experience to tackle the real problems facing their districts," said Ellen R. Malcolm, president of EMILY's List. "Their backgrounds and leadership will be valued assets in the upcoming freshman class in Congress. EMILY's List members are proud to support these Democratic women and help elect them to the United States House in November."
