Emily's List Endorses Senator Barbara Favola's Re-election Campaign
ARLINGTON - Emily's List announced this morning that they have endorsed the re-election of Senator Barbara Favola to the Virginia State Senate in 2019.
"EMILY's List is proud to stand with Sen. Barbara Favola because she is a progressive champion fighting for women’s reproductive rights, affordable health care, and strong public schools," said Geri Prado, Senior Director of State and Local Campaigns at EMILY's List.
"I am honored to have the support of a respected political advocacy group, nationally known for its efforts to elect progressive pro-choice women. Throughout my career, I have fought to improve public education and increase access to healthcare services, including family planning services. It is particularly important to me that women be given the dignity to make their own reproductive healthcare decisions. I will continue to make equity a cornerstone of my legislative agenda, including the fight for equal pay and paid family leave," said Favola.
Senator Barbara A. Favola represents Virginia’s 31st Senate district, which includes parts of Arlington and Fairfax counties, and a portion of Loudoun County. Senator Favola currently serves on the Local Government, Rehabilitation and Social Services, and Transportation Committees.
