Lowey Becomes First Woman to Lead Democratic Congressional Fundraising

New York Representative and avid abortion rights supporter Nita Lowey (D-NY) is the first woman selected to chair the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, whose efforts include taking back control of the House in 2002. Lowey, who is serving her eighth term in the House, will lead fundraising efforts and political planning for candidates in the 2002 House race. Lowey and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), the first woman selected to lead the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, led last year’s efforts to reach out to women donors. Lowey also chairs the pro-choice caucus in the House of Representatives.
