Washington, D.C. – Today the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund announced its endorsement of Josh Hawley for U.S. Senate in Missouri at a campaign event in Arnold, Missouri.
“Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund is proud to endorse longtime pro-life champion Josh Hawley,” said former congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs. “Hawley’s experience as an attorney and advocate for life, including arguing cases before the Supreme Court, will prove invaluable in the Senate. We are encouraged to see him take on Senator Claire McCaskill, who supports abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy and has repeatedly betrayed her constituents on important pro-life votes. We encourage pro-life voters to send him to Washington to fight for their values.”
Josh Hawley, an attorney and former clerk to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, serves as Missouri’s attorney general. Prior to his time as the top prosecutor for the state, he was an appellate litigator and senior counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, where he was a lead attorney in the Supreme Court case Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores. He and his wife Erin have two young sons and live in Ashland, Missouri.
SBA List previously launched mccaskilltooextreme.com and a hard-hitting digital ad campaign to expose Sen. McCaskill’s extremist views on abortion immediately following her vote against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (“Micah’s Law”), which would protect unborn children from late-term abortion after five months of pregnancy.
SBA List polling found that 60 percent of Missouri voters support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and 56 percent said they would be less likely to support Senator McCaskill if she voted to allow late-term 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 690,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
