Washington, D.C. – Tonight the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund celebrated its endorsed candidate Lynn Fitch’s victory in the runoff election for Mississippi attorney general. Fitch will face NARAL-backed Jennifer Collins in the general election this November.
“We congratulate Lynn on her victory and are pleased to see her advance in this race,” said Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List Vice President of Government Affairs. “Lynn is a staunch defender of life who worked hard to create a pro-life Republican platform as a member of the 2016 Republican National Convention platform committee. We look forward to seeing her take on Jennifer Collins, who is backed by the radical pro-abortion group NARAL. In this important odd-year election, we urge all pro-life voters of the Magnolia State to get out and support Lynn, a pro-woman leader who will uphold laws protecting unborn children and their mothers as attorney general.”
Lynn Fitch has served as state treasurer since 2011, the first Republican woman to hold this position. Previously she served as deputy executive director at the Mississippi Department of Employment Security and as counsel for the Mississippi House of Representatives Ways and Means and Local and Private Legislation Committees and was then named executive director of the Mississippi State Personnel Board by Governor Haley Barbour.
Lynn has received prestigious awards and recognition from The Mississippi Bar Association, Governing Magazine, and others. She and her family are active members in their church community, and she serves on the boards of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Goodwill Industries, and the Red Cross.
