‘And I’m a Mom.’ Candidates and Voters Warm to Kids on the Trail

| New York Times, September 12, 2018


New York Times Logo
This year, with a record number of women running for office and a surge of energy among female voters, candidates are pushing back on that bias, arguing that motherhood not only doesn’t disqualify them, it makes them more qualified.
In May, Liuba Grechen Shirley, a Democrat running for Congress on Long Island, successfully petitioned the Federal Election Commission to use campaign funds to pay for babysitters while she is on the trail. Women in five other states have since won or filed legislation for the right to do the same, and Ms. Grechen Shirley has a wall of postcards thanking her for moving women and mothers forward in politics.
