WASHINGTON, Nov. 1 /Christian Newswire/ -- This afternoon Dede Scozzafava, former Republican Party candidate for Congress in New York's 23rd Congressional District, endorsed Democrat Candidate Bill Owens In response, Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser issued the following statement:
"By her actions today Dede Scozzafava has confirmed why it was so important for conservatives and people who care about the GOP to get involved in this race.
"Doug Hoffman's candidacy is based upon the core principles of limited government, lower taxes and strong family values.
"When a GOP candidacy is not based on fundamental conservative values, the party and the principles are inevitably betrayed at critical moments.
"In this race and in future races, we will stand for the candidates who firmly believe in these fundamental American ideals. These principles are not only right, they are the path to electoral victory."
The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund, in partnership with the National Organization for Marriage, is organizing an independent conservative, pro-Hoffman grassroots ground program in the district. Field staff are recruiting over 200 volunteers to staff polls on election day, canvass churches, and distribute literature, lapel stickers and yard signs across the district. The pro-life Susan B. Anthony List has spent over $125,000 in the race so far, including over $50,000 in pro-Hoffman radio ads.
The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund joined the Club for Growth to be one of the first political action committees to endorse Doug Hoffman for Congress on September 28, 2009. The fund supports pro-life female candidates, as well as pro-life male candidates who run against female candidates in favor of abortion rights.
The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of Americans, over 167,000 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.
