Maryland NOW PAC Endorses Candidates for Maryland Offices


May 5, 2014

The Maryland Chapter of the National Organization for Women’s Political Action Committee (MD NOW PAC) enthusiastically announces its endorsement of 45 highly qualified candidates for elective office in Maryland (please see list below).

The PAC based its endorsements on candidates’ records and responses to questionnaires that expressed support for basic rights and policies critically important to the women, men, and children of Maryland. Last January 20, MD NOW PAC endorsed Heather Mizeur and Delman Coates for Governor and Lt. Governor of Maryland.

Maryland NOW President Sara Wilkinson said, “We hope all feminists will join with us helping to elect these strong candidates. We look forward to working with these leaders as they seek to serve the best interests of the women, men, and children of Maryland.”

The Montgomery County NOW PAC has made own endorsements for candidates in that county.
