Hanaway to Accept Endorsement from SBA List Vice President Rep. Marilyn Musgrave in St. Louis Today
ST. LOUIS, MO — The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List today announced its endorsement of Missouri gubernatorial candidate Catherine Hanaway.
Susan B. Anthony List Vice President and former U.S. Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave issued the following statement:
“We are excited to stand behind Catherine in this race. A lot of candidates say they are pro-life. One candidate here in Missouri, Eric Greitens, says he is pro-life while refusing to answer questions about his views. Missouri voters deserve firm and open commitment to fighting for the unborn and mothers, and Catherine Hanaway has shown time and time again that she will stand up for life. The SBA List and its hundreds of thousands of members around the country are proud to support her!”
Accepting the endorsement, Catherine Hanaway said:
“It is truly an honor to be endorsed by the SBA List. Protecting the life of the innocent unborn is more than a political issue to me; it is a moral calling. I was proud to stand up for life by passing Missouri’s first abortion waiting period and banning public funding for abortion. I was proud to stand up to child predators as U.S. Attorney. And I am proud to stand today with the SBA List, united in our commitment to save the lives of unborn children.” Hanaway will be formally endorsed by Congresswoman Musgrave at a press conference at 11am today at Hanaway’s Springfield campaign office (1658 E. St. Louis St., Springfield, MO). A similar press conference will be held at 1:30pm in Joplin at Granny’s Parlor (2728 North Rangeline Road, Joplin, MO).
Rep. Musgrave is travelling with Catherine Hanaway in the state today and is available for comment. Contact [email protected] to schedule an interview.
Susan B. Anthony List and its Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, spent $15.25 million in the 2014 election cycle to defeat pro-abortion incumbents and elect pro-life candidates to federal and statewide office. The SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
