WASHINGTON, March 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- "The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund is proud to endorse Sue Lowden for U.S. Senate in Nevada," said SBA List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
"Sue Lowden is exactly the type of authentic pro-life candidate Americans are hungry for, and that's why the SBA List Candidate Fund is prepared to highlight her race among a handful of priority contests in 2010.
"Right now there is a crying need for a pro-life woman's voice in the Senate and Sue Lowden is committed to being that voice. If elected, Sue Lowden has committed to be actively engaged in advancing legislation that protects the unborn and women. Sue combines everything we are looking for: an articulate female spokesman with the courage to back it up with advocacy for the unborn and women."
Sue Lowden's pro-life record spans back to her time as a Nevada state senator, where she championed a parental notification bill through committee to the floor of the Nevada State Senate.
The Nevada primary election is scheduled for June 8, 2010, where Lowden will face Danny Tarkanian and Sharron Angle.
In the general election, Sue Lowden will challenge Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Despite running as a pro-life candidate, Senator Reid holds a 0% voting record with the National Right to Life Committee for the 111th Congress. In the recent healthcare debate, Reid refused to support authentic pro-life amendments. In the Fall of 2009, the Susan B. Anthony List spent $100,000 on commercials asking Harry Reid to keep abortion out of healthcare.
Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund endorsements are promoted to the organization's nationwide membership of over 280,000 Americans. The SBA List Candidate Fund endorses pro-life female candidates, as well as pro-life male candidates who run against female candidates in favor of abortion rights. During the 2008 election cycle, the Susan B. Anthony List bundled over $1 million in direct candidate contributions from its members.
The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of over 280,000 Americans, residing in all 50 states, dedicated to mobilizing, advancing, and representing pro-life women in politics. Its connected Candidate Fund increases the percentage of pro-life women in the political process.
