Liuba Grechen Shirley has already proven that she will not only take on tough fights on behalf of working families – she knows how to win them, too. Earlier this year, Liuba successfully petitioned the FEC to allow her use campaign funds to pay for her child care expenses — an important first step in leveling the playing field for moms like her who are running for Congress. This is consistent with the rest of Liuba’s career, where she has served as an advocate for women and families at home and abroad, and has fought to expand economic opportunity for all. She is the fighter that New Yorkers need in Congress speaking up when their voices have gone unheard.
Liuba is running to face off against Republican incumbent Peter King, who has repeatedly voted against his constituents’ best interests. Liuba is the best candidate to flip this seat from red to blue and help Democrats take back the House in November. The EMILY’s List community is proud to stand alongside Liuba and help her do what it takes to win this fight.
