Rep. Lois Frankel heading up effort to recruit more women candidates



Freshman Florida Rep. Lois Frankel was named today as one of two heads of the DCCC’s “Women LEAD” effort to "engage women in the democratic process and build a network of people around the country dedicated to electing more women to the House of Representatives.

“As trailblazing women themselves, Lois Frankel and Chellie Pingree are dedicated to improving the lives of women across this country and to recruiting and supporting more women running for office,” said Re. Steve Israel, chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Their commitment to the cause of women’s rights, and their natural leadership will expand opportunity for all women. The facts are clear: When women vote, Democrats win. Bringing even more Democratic women into the political process is a winning formula for our party.”
