Stephanie Schriock (born March 18, 1973)[1] is an American political strategist and former president of EMILY's List, a position she served in from 2010 until 2021.

Early life and education[edit]

Schriock was born in Mankato, Minnesota, in 1973.[2][3] She attended Butte High School.[4] She graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato in 1995 and did master's work at George Washington University in political management.[5]


Schriock managed the races of Senator Jon Tester in 2006 and Senator Al Franken in 2008.[6] She was also Finance Director for Howard Dean's 2004 Presidential campaign.[7] Schriock was considered a potential candidate in the 2014 United States Senate election in Montana before ultimately declining to run.[8][9]

In 2010, Schriock was elected president of EMILY's List, an organization dedicated to recruiting pro-choice Democratic women to run for elected office, succeeding founder Ellen Malcolm.[10] Schriock raised more than $52 million and elected a record number of women to the House and Senate in 2012.[7] In 2011, she urged Elizabeth Warren to run for the Senate, an election she would go on to win with the support of EMILY's List.[11] Schriock also led the organization in support of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential bid and was herself reportedly considered by Clinton to be her campaign manager.[11] In the 2020 democratic presidential primaries, Schriock announced the organization would endorse Elizabeth Warren, crediting her past relationship with Warren as a reason for the endorsement.[12] Laphonza Butler succeeded her as president of EMILY's List in 2021.[13]

She serves on the Board of Advisors of Let America Vote, an organization founded by former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander that aims to end voter suppression.[14]
