Houlahan Among the First Endorsed By 314 Action in Early 2017
(Washington, D.C.) - 314 Action, the largest organization created specifically for scientists and STEM professionals running for office, congratulated engineer Chrissy Houlahan for her strong finish in Pennsylvania’s Sixth Congressional District.
Chrissy was one of the first candidates 314 Action endorsed in 2017, and the organization has provided PAC contributions as well as logistical support to the campaign. Chrissy’s strong campaign, rooted in a call for fact-based policy, has been a beacon of hope for 314 Action’s 500,000 supporters who have rallied behind her since last year.
Shaughnessy Naughton, President of 314 Action, issued the following statement:
“Chrissy ran an incredibly disciplined, intelligent and impressive campaign. Her victory is a win for Democrats, women and pro-science advocates across the country. 314 Action is proud to have supported her historic candidacy from the start, as she will enter the largest class of women to have ever represented the Pennsylvania delegation. I’m confident Chrissy will be a strong advocate for science in the halls of Congress and use her background to root policymaking in facts and evidence.”
