Heitkamp is an extremist who votes for abortion on demand through birth
Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced its field team of 41 canvassers has visited more than 37,000 North Dakota voters ahead of Election Day to elect pro-life Kevin Cramer and defeat incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp. Additionally, SBA List has held four in-state media events, reached 89,912 voters through persuasive voter contact mail and digital ads, and raised $30,537 in bundled contributions for Kevin Cramer.
“Senator Heitkamp presents herself as a moderate, but she is an extremist who votes for abortion on demand through birth,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “SBA List’s field team has visited more than 37,000 North Dakota voters who don’t consistently get to the polls, educating them about Senator Heitkamp’s repeated betrayals, including her votes to block Justice Brett Kavanaugh, send taxpayer dollars to abortion giant Planned Parenthood, and keep barbaric late-term abortions legal. The life issue will be a decisive issue in this contest. North Dakotans deserve better than a senator who sides with the radical abortion lobby over her own constituents. Heitkamp is out of step and must go.”
SBA List’s field team of more than 1,100 canvassers visited 2.7 million voters this election cycle across the battleground states of North Dakota, Missouri, Indiana, Montana, Florida, Ohio, West Virginia, Arizona, and Tennessee. A complete list of SBA List’s efforts to mobilize the pro-life vote in the 2018 election cycle can be viewed here.
SBA List held three press tours in North Dakota to urge Sen. Heitkamp to vote to confirm each of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominees, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, and to announce the field program.
SBA List is dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders. SBA List is a network of more than 700,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
