PHILADELPHIA, PA — Today, 314 Action Fund, the premier organization electing Democratic scientists and STEM candidates to public office, endorsed Dr. Kristin Lyerly in Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional district open-seat race.

“314 Action Fund is proud to endorse Dr. Kristin Lyerly for Congress. Kristin is a tireless advocate for protecting women’s reproductive freedoms, expanding access to affordable healthcare, tackling climate change, and doing what’s best for the people of Wisconsin’s 8th district,” said Shaughnessy Naughton, Founder and President of 314 Action Fund. “Dr. Lyerly's campaign has generated significant momentum and a broad base of support in a very short amount of time, building consensus with groups and people that come from different backgrounds. That experience of bringing people together is going to serve her well in Washington.”

kristin-lyerly-md“I’m honored to have 314 Action's endorsement, and the groundswell of support our campaign has received to flip this district in November,” said Dr. Lyerly. “As a mom, a physician, and a community leader, I have always put the interests of Northeast Wisconsin first, and I'll continue that in Washington. I’ll fight to rein in inflation and the cost of living, protect women’s reproductive freedoms, tackle climate change, and hold politicians in Washington accountable."
