MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A national group that supports Democratic women electoral candidates who support abortion rights has endorsed Kesha Ram (‘KAY-sha Rahm’) for Vermont lieutenant governor.

Ram, of Burlington, was chosen by Emily’s List.

Emily’s List has 3 million members around the country and is considered a plum endorsement and good source of fundraising for female candidates who support reproductive choice.

Ram is in her eighth year in the Vermont House and has been outspoken on a range on issues including advocating for victims of domestic and sexual violence, affordable child care and tax credits to promote economic growth.

She faces state Sen. David Zuckerman in the Democratic primary. Republican Randy Brock also is seeking the lieutenant governor’s post.
