WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Susan B. Anthony List announced its endorsement of Susana Martinez, Republican candidate for Governor of New Mexico.
“The contrast between Susana Martinez and Diane Denish is clear,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “As a district attorney, Susana Martinez has worked to protect children and families while Diane Denish, an honorary board member of the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League (NARAL), opposes commonsense parental notification laws which ensure that parents are notified if their underage daughter seeks an abortion. We are proud to support Susana Martinez’s candidacy for Governor because she is the better candidate for women and families across New Mexico.”
Martinez received the endorsement of New Mexico Right to Life and the honor of Heart Magazine’s 2008 “Woman of the Year” for her dedication to children’s advocacy. Denish is backed by the pro-abortion EMILY’s List and is an honorary board member of National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League (NARAL).
A recent Rasmussen Reports Poll found Martinez leading Denish by a 51 percent to 41 percent margin.
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.
