WASHINGTON – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hits Chicago on Tuesday to headline a fundraiser for House Democrats, with events in the city coming up for Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls Jay Inslee and Kirsten Gillibrand...

Illinois Women Vote and Inslee: This new partnership is formed by the leaders of three groups: Kimberly Walz, the director of Illinois Women for Hillary; Sarah Kammerer, the ChiWomen Vote founder; and Dara Chevlin Tarkowski; from Sharp Mamas.

“We decided to join forces (and lists!) to engage as many women about the 2020 presidential election. Together we have a network of over 8,000 engaged women in Illinois,” they said on their website. They will not be endorsing and have the potential to become the must stop for candidates who want exposure to voters who are not donors.

Their event with Inslee is at 4 p.m. Sunday in the West Loop. It’s free but you need to register at
