Washington, D.C. – Tonight the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) celebrated as its endorsed candidate Representative Barbara Comstock advanced to the general election for U.S. House of Representatives in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District.
SBA List members have bundled nearly $20,000 for Rep. Comstock and ahead of today’s vote SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser made a GOTV phone call to all Republican primary voters.
“Congresswoman Comstock is a steadfast pro-life ally in Congress, and we congratulate her on this primary win,” said Dannenfelser. “Barbara has worked to create a culture of life by supporting compassionate, popular legislation to stop late-term abortions after five months of pregnancy. She has consistently voted to stop taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses. Because of her principled record on life, she is a top target of the extreme abortion lobby. We are proud to see her advance and we urge pro-life Virginians to re-elect her this November.”
Comstock was first elected to Congress in 2014 after serving in the Virginia House of Delegates. Previously she was a senior aide to Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) and went on to be the chief counsel on the largest House committee tasked with investigations into waste, fraud, and abuse. She has a lifetime record of voting pro-life, including supporting the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, as well as legislation to prevent taxpayer funding of abortion.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, visiting more than 1.1 million homes 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, SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. SBA List is a network of more than 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
