WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the Susan B. Anthony List announced its endorsement of Colorado State Representative Cory Gardner, candidate for U.S. House of Representatives in Colorado’s 4th District, against freshman incumbent Betsy Markey.
“The contrast between Cory Gardner and Betsy Markey is clear,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Cory Gardner has consistently voted to protect Life in the Colorado State House while EMILY’s List favorite Betsy Markey has voted in lock-step with the pro-abortion Obama-Pelosi administration. Unlike Betsy Markey, Cory Gardner will protect the hard-earned tax dollars of Colorado families from funding abortion. He is the better candidate for women and all Coloradans.”
Markey has been endorsed by the pro-abortion EMILY’s List and has received $248,924 in campaign contributions from the abortion lobby, according to FEC.gov. She currently holds a 16 percent voting record with the National Right to Life Committee, including votes in favor of taxpayer funding of abortion in the health care reform bill and against the pro-life Stupak-Pitts Amendment to prohibit federal funding of abortion.
The Susan B. Anthony List plans to spend $6 million on voter education in the midterm elections, including $3 million on key Senate races. 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.
