In June, EMILY’s List announced that Elizabeth Esty, a Democratic congressional candidate in the 5th District, was “On the List.” That designation gave Esty access to the 900,000 names in the data base of the group, which raises money for pro-choice Democratic women running for office.

Kinda sounds like an endorsement, no?

Apparently not. EMILY’s List announced today it was endorsing Esty, moving her from merely being “On the List” to “a full recommendation.” You could say Esty is now on the list.
