WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tonight Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said of Sharron Angle’s victory in the Nevada Senate Republican primary:
“Sharron Angle is helping to usher in the year of the pro-life woman by leading the return to feminism’s pro-life roots. Voters believe in Sharron’s ability to unseat one of the pro-abortion health care bill’s biggest supporters and that opportunity comes at a critical turning point for women in politics.”
During the health care debate, the SBA List launched an aggressive television ad campaign calling Harry Reid to account for his misleading pro-life self-label which was contradicted by his consistently pro-choice voting record, including his leadership in support of the pro-abortion health care bill. The SBA List has pledged to spend $1 million to unseat Harry Reid and replace him with a true pro-life leader.
“Too often elected officials say one thing at home and vote another way in Washington. Harry Reid calls himself a ‘pro-life’ Democrat then pushed for a health care bill using taxpayer dollars to subsidize abortion,” Dannenfelser said. “The Susan B. Anthony List is committed to ensuring that Nevada voters see the distinction between Harry Reid’s false promises and Sharron Angle’s proven pro-life commitment.”
The Susan B. Anthony List plans to spend $6 million on voter education in the midterm elections, including $3 million on key Senate races, $1 million in bundled direct candidate contributions from SBA List members and $1 million on its plan to target “pro-life” Democrats who voted for abortion funding in the health care bill. The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of over 280,000 Americans, residing in all 50 states, dedicated to mobilizing, advancing, and representing pro-life women in politics. Its connected Candidate Fund increases the percentage of pro-life women in the political process.
