Georgia’s WIN List

Did you know… 

Georgia is tied with Maine for the most Democratic women candidates – 91 – on any November ballot NATIONWIDE? 

Georgia’s WIN List has by far the most endorsed women candidates for ALL Southern states? We have twice as many as Lillian’s List in North Carolina and almost twice as many as Ruth’s List in Florida. 

Only Georgia and Indiana have Democratic women at the top of the ticket as nominees for BOTH Governor and Lieutenant Governor? 

With three additional women on the statewide ballot, Georgia is also in the TOP TIER for the number of women who are seeking statewide office?

2018 is THE Year of Women in Georgia.

That’s why we’re hosting our Stand with WINning Women celebration on September 25th.


And then share with your friends.
