“We are proud to have supported more endorsed candidates in a single cycle than ever before. We also had two women running at the top of the Democratic ticket – a first for Texas.
“While we wish that every one of our Annie’s List endorsed candidates had won her race, we applaud the courage of all of these women willing to run, even in districts where the challenges were great.
“This is just the start of a remarkable time for women in Texas, a time when women across the state are coming together, taking action and finding their voice. We’ve made progress engaging more women, and we will continue leading that mission. We are committed to learning from this election cycle.
“The issues that have become the central focus this year are issues of critical importance to Texas women. In this election, issues such as equal pay for all Texans and women’s access to health care became key components of the political discourse.
“The conversation has now started in earnest – and it will not end with these elections. We will work with our elected officials during this legislative session to ensure that the issues of importance to women stay at the fore. We’ll also continue to encourage more courageous women run for office across the state.
“When more and more women become engaged, more and more women become elected. We’ll continue building on this year’s momentum for the next cycle and beyond.”
