US Reps. Dan Webster, Bill Young among top five EMILY’s List targets for 2014

in Uncategorized by

EMILY’s List, the pro-choice Democratic women’s group, is naming five members of Congress as top targets in 2014, including Florida’s Dan Webster and Bill Young. On the list are Reps. Shelley Moore Capito (W.V.-02) – who’s running for Senate — Rodney Davis (IL-13), Gary Miller (CA-31), Webster (FL-10) and Young (FL-13).

The group is placing them “On Notice” for what EMILY’s List calls their “appallingly anti-woman, anti-family records.”

“[M]embers of Congress like Capito, Davis, Miller, Webster, and Young, are doubling down on insane policies that would roll back the clock on women’s rights and opportunities,” EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock said in a release. “Collectively they have failed to cosponsor the Violence Against Women Act which would give necessary protections to victims of domestic violence, have routinely opposed or ignored paycheck fairness legislation, and support extreme anti-choice legislation that would severely limit reproductive healthcare access.”
