Organizations endorse Sen. Baker
West and South Maui state Sen. Roz Baker has been endorsed for re-election by EMILY's List, the nation's largest resource for women in politics; and the Patsy T. Mink Political Action Committee, a political network supporting Democratic women candidates, according to an announcement.
"Roz Baker is a strong advocate for education and a dynamic leader who has spent over two decades in the Legislature fighting hard for equality, women's reproductive rights and health care for all," said Denise Feriozzi, EMILY's List political director.
The Mink PAC is a grass-roots political network dedicated to helping progressive, pro-choice Democratic women candidates who will fight for and protect a woman's right to choose.
"We look forward to Sen. Baker's continued leadership on this and other issues that are critical to women and their families," said Jadine Nielsen, chairwoman of the Patsy T. Mink Political Action Committee.
