“Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List, said that her group is making Fiorina’s election a top priority. Fiorina’s landslide win in the primary ‘is a huge success already and an affirmation of our mission,’ Dannenfelser said. ‘But to win [in November] will be a watershed for women for a long time running for office.'”
