Washington, DC ─ Today the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund, a national pro-life political action committee, announced its endorsement of Steve Daines for U.S. Senate in Montana.
“Congressman Steve Daines has already been an articulate and dedicated pro-life advocate in the House of Representatives and we are proud to endorse his Senate bid,” said SBA List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
“Congressman Daines has been a much-needed voice for pro-life taxpayers in Washington, where he has worked tirelessly to stop the expansion of taxpayer funding of abortion brought on by Obamacare. Last year, Steve also voted in favor of compassionate legislation to protect babies after 5 months – more than halfway through pregnancy. This popular legislation has been blocked in the U.S. Senate by Harry Reid and opposed by extreme pro-abortion groups like EMILY’s List and NOW, which have endorsed Steve’s opponent,” continued Dannenfelser. “We look forward to Rep. Daines victory in November so we can advance this modest proposal, which is supported by the majority of Americans, women in higher numbers than men.”
Steve Daines has represented Montana’s At-Large seat in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2013, after he defeated longtime pro-abortion advocate Kim Gillan.
The Susan B. Anthony List, and its connected Political Action Committee, the SBA List Candidate Fund, are dedicated to electing candidates and pursuing policies that will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List will emphasize the election, education, promotion, and mobilization of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
