WASHINGTON, June 4 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund, a national pro-life Political Action Committee, applauded the victory of Representative Steve Pearce in the GOP Primary Election for New Mexico Senate.
Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser commented on the victory:
"Steve Pearce's victory is a victory for women and unborn children. His November victory over Tom Udall will be the same."
Steve Pearce is a Republican candidate for New Mexico Senate. In advance of the primary election, the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund bundled $94,000 in SBA List member contributions for Pearce and twice contacted over 33,000 pro-life voters on Pearce’s behalf. With 99% of districts reporting, Pearce lead Representative Heather Wilson (R-NM) 51% to 49%. Pearce will face Rep. Tom Udall (D-NM), a Democrat in favor of abortion rights, in the November general election.
"Susan B. Anthony List members are eager to stand by the real pro-life heroes when they need it most," said Dannenfelser. "Steve Pearce is the best candidate to confirm sound Supreme Court nominees and defend human life in the U.S. Senate."
Steve Pearce earned the endorsement of the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund earlier this year. He currently represents New Mexico's Second Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Pearce has a 100% pro-life voting record as a Member of Congress.
