BOSTON - The Massachusetts Women's Political Caucus (MWPC) Political Action Committee (PAC) has announced re-endorsements for female legislators seeking re-election across Massachusetts. 

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

"We are pleased to re-endorse a group of terrific candidates who have demonstrated time and again how committed they are to making positive changes in districts across Massachusetts," said Laurie Martinelli, MWPC Executive Director.
