Sheri Donahue receives the endorsement of EMILY’s List
FRANKFORT, KY SEPTEMBER 19, 2019: Following on the heels of several high profile articles in the national media, Sheri Donahue, Democratic nominee for Kentucky Auditor of Public Accounts, has received more national attention with the endorsement of EMILY’s List.
EMILY’s List is a national political action committee (PAC) that supports women candidates running for office.
“It’s gratifying to be recognized for my hard work and accomplishments,” said Donahue.
Former Lt Governor and two-term Auditor Crit Luallen said, “We are lucky to have Sheri running. I know how critical this office is, and she is the most qualified person ever to seek it, and I include myself.”
Sheri Donahue worked for the U.S. Navy for 20 years auditing multi-billion dollar weapons systems and managing classified intelligence contracts. Donahue was also the President and Executive Director of InfraGard, a 50,000-person organization that works with the FBI to protect the nation’s critical infrastructure.
“Sheri Donahue is committed to ensuring the government serves all people of Kentucky and is balanced and effective. Throughout her career in cybersecurity, she has dedicated her time to fighting government waste,” said Geri Prado, vice president of state and local campaigns at EMILY’s List. “We are proud to endorse Sheri’s campaign for Kentucky Auditor and know she will serve the families of the Bluegrass State well.”
Donahue added, “I’ve worked very hard for all that I have accomplished. As your next State Auditor, I will work tirelessly to achieve great things for Kentucky families!”
Sheri Donahue is the only candidate that EMILY’s List has endorsed in Kentucky this cycle.
Retired Frankfort businesswoman Sallye Hill Stumbo added, “I have supported EMILY’s List from since 1984, and I’m so excited and proud that we have a candidate like Sheri who has earned the support of EMILY’s List. The numbers show that Sheri can win. To make that kind of difference for women, and to chip away at “Moscow” Mitch McConnell right here in his own state, this is progress.”
