Washington, D.C. – Today Susan B. Anthony List’s Candidate Fund PAC announced its endorsement of Beth Harwell (R) for Congress in Tennessee’s 5th District.
“Beth Harwell is a faithful champion of the unborn who proves that pro-life is truly pro-woman,” said Hon. Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s vice president of government affairs. “Beth’s dynamic efforts as House speaker led to a pro-life constitutional amendment, strongly approved by voters, paving the way for swift enactment of life-saving laws. She did not rest, but immediately put her support behind health and safety requirements to hold the profit-driven abortion industry accountable, as well as legislation to protect women’s right to see an ultrasound and hear their baby’s heartbeat. Finally, under her leadership Tennessee successfully defunded abortion businesses of taxpayer dollars. In Congress she will stand up to pro-abortion Democrats for Tennessee’s pro-life values, and we couldn’t be prouder to support her.”
Harwell served in the Tennessee House of Representatives from 1989-2019 and as speaker of the House from 2011-2019, the first woman to hold that position. She was then appointed by President Trump to serve on the board of the Tennessee Valley Authority. Throughout her life she has been involved with numerous charitable and political efforts, including serving as chair of the Tennessee Republican Party. Her husband Sam is the founder of Big Time Toys, LLC and they have three children.
