Emily Randall Announces Planned Parenthood Action Fund Sole Endorsement

The nonpartisan group backed by over 7 million reproductive access supporters throws its support behind Randall.

BREMERTON, WA—Emily Randall announced today that she has been sole endorsed by Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) in her race to succeed outgoing Congressman Derek Kilmer. 

Randall, a current State Senator, is widely known as one of the most pro-reproductive freedom elected officials in Washington state. 

“Earning the endorsement of Planned Parenthood Action Fund in this congressional campaign means so much to me,” said Randall. “My political career began at Planned Parenthood – and as a legislator I have partnered with Planned Parenthood in my work to strengthen abortion access in Washington state. Planned Parenthood Action Fund knows that we need reproductive champions in Congress to fight for our right to make our own decisions about our bodies, our families, and our futures.

“Planned Parenthood Action Fund is committed to helping elect reproductive health care champions, and we know that Emily Randall will be that champion for Washington’s 6th Congressional District,” said Alexis McGill Johnson, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “As a truly effective advocate for health care access, Emily will bring the same tenacity to Washington, DC that we have seen from her as a legislator in Washington state. We are excited to support her campaign to join Washington state’s Congressional delegation.”

To date, State Senator Emily Randall has received nearly 300 endorsements, including 60 current and former Washington elected officials as well as The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, South Kitsap Professional Firefighters, Sheet Metal Workers Local 66, Equality PAC, PODER PAC, Washington Secretary of State Steve Hobbs, Washington State Senate Majority Leader Andy Billig, and U.S. Congressmembers Becca Balint, Robert Garcia, Mark Takano, and Ritchie Torres.

The Sixth Congressional District spans from Tacoma to the Olympic Peninsula, and has been represented by Congressman Derek Kilmer since 2013. On November 9, 2023, Kilmer announced his retirement. If elected, Emily Randall, a third generation Washingtonian and 25 year resident of the district, would be the first LGBTQ+ Latina ever elected to Congress.
