Jessica Ehrlich, candidate for Florida’s new 13th Congressional District, today announced her campaign has been endorsed by the Women’s Campaign Fund (WCF) and eQualityGiving. Since announcing her candidacy in late-February, Ehrlich has built a strong and growing coalition of support, including being put “On the List” by EMILY’s List and endorsed by the New Democrat Coalition.

“Our coalition continues to grow and I am honored to have the support of these respected national organizations. Residents of Pinellas County deserve a Representative in Washington who will fight for them. In Congress, I will stand up against the institutionalized systems of intolerance that hurt our economy and our families so that we can build a brighter future for all Americans,” said Jessica Ehrlich.

“WCF is proud to stand with Jessica Ehrlich … We desperately need more exceptional women leaders like Jessica, who support reproductive health choices and options for all, and we believe voices like hers are what’s missing from government today,” said Siobhan Bennett, President/CEO of the Women’s Campaign Fund.

The Women’s Campaign Fund PAC (WCF) is dedicated to electing strong, women leaders who have demonstrated leadership experience working to improve the lives of women. WCF supports women at the earliest stages of their race, when that support is most critical.

“We are incredibly excited to support Jessica Ehrlich’s campaign to represent Florida’s new 13th District in Congress. … Floridians and all Americans deserve more from their Representatives, and we know Jessica Ehrlich will deliver,” said Ken Ahonen-Jover, MD, co-founder of eQualityGiving.

eQualityGiving works to grow and support an online community of donors by providing free services and strategic advice to achieve legal equality for LGBT Americans.

Ehrlich’s campaign manager, Gwen Rocco, added, “Jessica’s growing coalition of support in this race proves the strength of the campaign she is building to take on an entrenched incumbent in November. … Ehrlich brings new energy and a fresh approach to tackling the challenges facing our communities and the gridlock in Washington.”
