Three Major Pro-life Groups Announce Endorsement in-person at Press Conference in St. Paul
Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) will announce its endorsement of Karin Housley for U.S. Senate at a joint press conference with Minnesota Concerned Citizens for Life Federal PAC and National Right to Life PAC. Housley is running for the seat vacated by resigning Al Franken (D-MN). The special election will take place November 6, 2018.
The press conference will take place at 11 AM local time at the State Capitol in St. Paul, MN in Press Conference Room B971.

Sue Swayze Liebel, SBA List’s National Pro-life Women’s Caucus Coordinator said:
“We are pleased to endorse a principled pro-life leader like Karin Housley. Karin has a 100 percent pro-life voting record in the Minnesota Senate. She is running against an abortion industry lobbyist who has worked to block even the most modest pro-life initiatives, including a popular policy to stop taxpayer funding of abortion. For too long, this seat has been held by abortion extremists who are out of step with most Minnesotans. Karin will work for the people, not the abortion lobby. Her voice is greatly needed in the U.S. Senate and we urge voters to support her.”
Karin Housley accepted the endorsement saying:
“I am very grateful for Susan B. Anthony List’s endorsement. I am proud of my record of protecting the most vulnerable as well as standing up for Minnesota values, and I look forward to bringing a fresh voice to Washington.”
Housley has served in the Minnesota state senate since 2013. She is a business owner and a mother. She and her husband Phil have traveled the nation due to his NHL hockey career, but Minnesota remains their home. They have four children and two grandchildren.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, knocking on more than 1.1 million doors in battleground states to defeat Hillary Clinton and maintain a pro-life Senate. 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 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
