Ohio: EMILY’s List Endorses Tiberi’s Challenger

Posted June 16, 2010 at 6:24pm

EMILY’s List is backing Democrat Paula Brooks, who hopes to unseat Rep. Patrick Tiberi (R) in November.

In announcing the endorsement Wednesday, the group’s president, Stephanie Schriock, praised Brooks’ record as the president of the Franklin County Commission and called her “a common-sense, hardworking leader.”

Brooks was added to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s “Red to Blue” program in March.

EMILY’s List supports Democratic women who back abortion rights. In the 2008 election cycle, the group raised more than $43 million for its candidates.
