Washington, D.C. ─ The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) declared victory as its endorsed candidate, Bunni Pounds, advanced to the runoff in her primary for U.S. House of Representatives in Texas’ 5th congressional district. The runoff election is May 22nd.
“We are excited to see Bunni Pounds, an outstanding pro-life leader, advance in her House race,” said former U.S. Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs. “Bunni is a longtime advocate of unborn children and their mothers who prioritizes the protection of innocent lives and can be depended on to stand up to the abortion lobby. We hope to see her in Congress, where her voice is so greatly needed, and urge the pro-life citizens of Texas to support her in the runoff election.”
Bunni Pounds is a small business owner and former staff member for Congressman Jeb Hensarling, who has endorsed Pounds in her run for Congress. Pounds and her husband are active members of their church and are involved in Christian ministry.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, knocking on more than 1.1 million doors in battleground states to defeat Hillary Clinton and maintain a pro-life Senate. SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
