Tony Evers, John Fetterman, Maggie Hassan and Patty Murray Ran on Platforms of Delivering Relief for Working Families
Family Friendly Action PAC Ran a $12.6 Million Voter Contact Program in Support of These Candidates
Washington, DC – Today, the Family Friendly Action PAC celebrates the election of Tony Evers, John Fetterman, Maggie Hassan and Patty Murray, candidates who ran on platforms of lowering costs for families by addressing the cost of child care, elder care and prescription drugs and passing paid family and medical leave. The Family Friendly Action PAC ran a $12.6 million voter contact program across battleground states including Georgia, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Washington and Wisconsin. The program included robust investments in door-to-door canvassing as well as paid digital, mail and phone calls. In total, Family Friendly Action PAC had 107,006 unique conversations with voters this cycle and knocked on 1,311,710 doors.
“In battleground states across the country, voters have sent a clear message: Families need elected officials to give them the tools and opportunities to build a better life,” said Sondra Goldschein, executive director of the Family Friendly Action PAC. “Tony Evers, John Fetterman, Maggie Hassan and Patty Murray made cutting costs for families and passing care policies central to their campaigns, and voters rewarded them for it. We look forward to seeing what they will accomplish on behalf of families over the coming years.”
Additionally, as a runoff in Georgia seems likely, the Family Friendly Action PAC announced that it will invest an additional $3.1 million to reelect Sen. Rev. Raphael Warnock, who has been a strong champion for working families in the Senate and currently leads his opponent in total votes cast.
Tony Evers, John Fetterman, Maggie Hassan, Patty Murray and Raphael Warnock made lowering costs for working families and passing care policies like paid family and medical leave central to their appeal to voters.
- During the Georgia Senate debate, Sen. Rev. Raphael Warnock highlighted his support for a provision in the Inflation Reduction Act to reduce the cost of prescription drugs for people on Medicare. He has frequently called on his opponent to explain why he opposes efforts to lower prescription drug costs for seniors and make health care more affordable.
- In an ad released last month, John Fetterman spotlighted his support for improving access to healthcare, lowering costs and making sure families are able to spend time with their loved ones. In one of his closing ads, Fetterman promised he would support policies to drive down costs for families like lowering the costs of child care.
- Throughout her campaign, Sen. Maggie Hassan, a long-time champion of care policies in the Senate, demonstrated her support for families. In an ad released last month, Sen. Hassan highlighted her work to lower prescription drug costs and save taxpayers billions of dollars.
- Sen. Patty Murray, a leader in the fight to establish a national paid family and medical leave program, emphasized the need to lower the cost of health care and child care for working families during her campaign.
- In his second term, Gov. Tony Evers has plans to lower costs for working families, including lowering prescription drugs prices, capping insulin copays at $35 and expanding the Child and Dependent Care Credit.
Recently, the Family Friendly Action PAC released a storybook highlighting the roles lowering costs and passing care policies were likely to play for voters in battleground states and districts including Georgia, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
