The Massachusetts Women's Political Caucus (MWPC) Political Action Committee (PAC) today announced its final round of endorsements for women seeking political office across Massachusetts.

These endorsements come as more women are seeking the support of the MWPC, whose mission is to "recruit, train and elect" women to political office. This year’s endorsements include races for State Representative, State Senate and District Attorney.

"We are pleased to endorse a group of terrific women candidates who are highly qualified and committed to making positive changes in districts across Massachusetts," said Laurie Martinelli, Executive Director. "This is a watershed year for the Caucus in many respects, and through these endorsements for offices statewide we are seeing this women’s movement unfolding right in front of our eyes.”

The MWPC PAC endorsements yielded major successes last year, as 29 of the 36 candidates endorsed in the fall 2017 municipal elections won their races. The Caucus hopes to continue on this successful trajectory by providing candidates with a myriad of resources and tools needed to compete and win, including communications and social media support, volunteer recruitment, and voter outreach.
