Martha Shafer is among nineteen women candidates endorsed by EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics.

“I’m so proud to receive the endorsement of EMILY’s List,” said Shafer. “This wonderful organization works hard to increase the number of women in every level of government. My campaign is all about improving the lives of North Carolina’s families by providing access to better education, healthcare, and job opportunities for all. It’s great to have EMILY’s List behind us!”

EMILY’s List leaders say Shafer’s commitment to improving healthcare for all North Carolinians and her experience in the industry made her a great choice for endorsement.

“Martha Shafer will bring strong leadership to the North Carolina General Assembly,” said Geri Prado, senior director of state and local campaigns at EMILY’s List. “As someone who has worked in the health care industry, Martha understands the difficulties North Carolina families face in covering basic needs. As state representative, Martha will fight to expand Medicaid and make health care affordable for all North Carolinians. We are proud to stand with Martha.”
