Lesko’s Extremist Opponent Supports Partial-birth Abortion
Washington, DC ─ Today the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund announced its endorsement of Representative Debbie Lesko for re-election in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District.
“Congresswoman Debbie Lesko is a pro-life champion who works tirelessly to protect unborn children and their mothers,” said former congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs. “Arizona voters sent a resounding message earlier this year when they elected Debbie, a staunch advocate for the dignity of every human being, and rejected the radical abortion lobby. The contrast between Debbie and her opponent, an extremist who opposes any limits on abortion – even on barbaric partial-birth abortions – could not be greater. Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund is proud to endorse Congresswoman Lesko, and we encourage all pro-life Arizonans to support her at the polls so she can continue standing up for their values in Washington.”
Rep. Debbie Lesko was elected to Congress in April of 2018 in a special election for the 8th District, defeating NARAL-backed Hiral Tiperneni. Previously she served in the Arizona legislature for nine years, including as president pro tempore of the state senate. She is a co-sponsor of the Heartbeat Protection Act and the Life at Conception Act. She lives in Peoria with her husband, Joe, and has three children.
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.
