WIN List presents Candidates for Governor October 2

winlist

The Georgia’s WIN List  October 2 Governor’s Race Candidate Conversation features Representative Stacey Abrams and Representative Stacey Evans in their first joint appearance of the 2018 campaign.

The event takes place at The Carter Center* and we hope you will join us for the VIP reception beginning at 5:15 as a member of our Host Committee. The event is historic because Georgia voters have never before had two so highly qualified women running for the state’s top job.  Our WIN List Candidate Conversation is not a “formal” debate or forum, but rather a conversation between the moderator and the  candidates. The moderator will pose the same set of questions about major issues to both women, with each having equal time for their answers.

The Host Committee reception also includes Rep. Abrams and Rep. Evans, our Annual Fund Giving Circle donors, our endorsed elected officials and board members. The reception takes place in The Carter Center Rotunda and the Candidate Conversation follows shortly before 7 pm in the Cecil B. Day Chapel.

Host Committee reservations can be secured via the WIN List website: http://bit.ly/werewithstacey  To insure  your name is on the Host Committee list before the invite for General Admission ticket sales is sent on September 6, please make your commitment prior to September 5.

Certainly, Republicans would like nothing better than to see this contest sharply divide Georgia’s Democratic and moderate women voters. However, we know Georgia women are united in their desire to change the face of power in Georgia. It is time to overthrow the stale, pale patriarchy and seat  women at the tables of power where the policies which directly affect our lives and those of our families are made.

Your contribution supports our continuing work which has given Georgia the highest percentage of women legislators for any state in the South.  As both Rep. Abrams and Rep. Evans travel the state reaching out to voters, we at WIN List will be working to recruit and train strong women candidates for other statewide seats and a dozen or more newly competitive legislative seats which we hope to flip to Democratic control. The national political climate has inspired renewed interest in politics — particularly for women, many of whom have become involved as never before.
