- National Political Director of EMILY’s List
Karen M. White is the National Political Director of EMILY’s List, a network that raises money for the campaigns of Democratic, pro-choice, female political candidates. The organizers of the list believe that providing money to such candidates early in the process gives the latter more credibility and, as a result, access to more campaign contributions.
White worked for Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu’s 1995 gubernatorial campaign; she was the campaign manager for former Maryland Governor Parris Glendening’s 1998 race; and she served as the Coordinated Campaign Director for the Maryland Democratic Party in 2002. Most recently, her attention has been focused on helping EMILY-endorsed candidates win their elections.
