Tribpedia: Annie's List

Annie's List is a statewide political network that recruits, trains, supports and raises money for Democratic women candidates. 

Annie's List was founded in 2003. It is named for Annie Webb Blanton, who became the first woman to win statewide office in 1918 as the superintendent of instruction.  The organization is modeled on the nationwide Emily's List.

Annie's List has been instrumental in the election of several members of the Texas Legislature.
