HARRISBURG – One year after the presidential election, interest in Emerge Pennsylvania’s intensive seven-month training program was higher than ever. The organization received 57 applications from Democratic women who are interested in seeking public office across the Commonwealth. The Emerge Pennsylvania board has been interviewing applicants for weeks to narrow down the list of women who will be accepted into the 2018 cohort.
“I am so encouraged by the sheer number of women who are telling me that they want to run for office,” said Emerge Pennsylvania co-founder and State Representative Tina Davis, “The political climate of this past year has women fired up and ready to challenge the status quo.”
