New Poll Shows Key to NC Senate Race is Undecided Pro-life Voters
Washington, D.C – Today Women Speak Out PAC, partner of the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), launched an 11-day, $620,000 television ad campaign in the Raleigh, NC media market to expose Senator Kay Hagan’s position on abortion.
“This hard-hitting television campaign is air support for our extensive ground game. To date, our field team has knocked on more than 104,000 doors and made more than 245,000 phone calls to turn out pro-life voters who don’t typically vote in midterm elections,” said Women Speak Out PAC President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
The ad featuring Ned and Rebecca Ryun and their daughter Charlotte focuses on Kay Hagan’s refusal to support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, popular legislation to limit abortion after five months – more than halfway through pregnancy.
“Senator Hagan’s support for taxpayer funded abortion and late term abortion after five months flies in the face of mainstream North Carolinians who, like the majority of all Americans, support this compassionate legislation to protect women and their babies from late abortion,” said Tami Fitzgerald, WSO North Carolina State Director. “Polling released yesterday shows that 59 percent of undecided voters who care about the abortion issue are pro-life. Our efforts could make the difference for pro-life Thom Tillis in this race.”
Media Advisory: Tami Fitzgerald will rally pro-life voters outside of tonight’s senatorial debate from 5:15-6:30 PM at RTP – Northwest corner of TW Alexander Drive and National Driving Center Road (access road to UNC-TV). Fitzgerald will be available to the press to answer questions about the Senate debate, the work of Women Speak Out PAC, and the impact the pro-life community will play in this year’s election. Please contact Jessica Wood ([email protected]) to schedule an interview.
The Susan B. Anthony List and its Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, are 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.
