WCF President/CEO Sam Bennett’s Statement on Congresswoman-Elect Kathy Hochul’s Victory in NY-26

(WASHINGTON, DC) – “WCF is thrilled to extend our sincerest congratulations to WCF-endorsee and now Congresswoman-elect Kathy Hochul. From the beginning of Congresswoman-elect Hochul’s career in public service, her commitment to fighting for the people she serves was evident. That’s why WCF was proud to endorse her just 3 weeks after she announced her candidacy, and that’s why we are thrilled to stand beside her today in victory. We are confident she will be a champion for the women and families of New York’s 26th Congressional District.”

The Women’s Campaign Forum is the country’s only national, non-partisan organization dedicated to advancing the political participation of talented women leaders who support reproductive health choices and options at all levels of office, throughout the country, and regardless of political party.

  • ★ 50% Representation

    Why should good government depend on only half of the nation’s human capital? WCF commits to 50% representation of women in elected office by 2028.

  • ★ Common Ground

    Common ground just means problems get solved more collaboratively, for the good of more people. It’s the bedrock of our leadership at home and abroad.

  • ★ Viability for Election

    It takes more than money to make a candidate worth electing. WCF looks for guts, street sense, situational awareness, resilience -- the full range of gifts a woman brings to the race.

  • ★ Non-Partisan

    A woman’s place is in every party, every elected office, at every level. Period.
