WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today, in response to tonight's Vice Presidential Debate, the Susan B. Anthony List President offered the following statement:
"The Sarah we saw tonight was the same Sarah from the GOP convention - the real Sarah. She is back," said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. "American voters are looking for authenticity, and tonight they could see it in Sarah Palin. From the PTA to pro-life values to Pakistan, Sarah Palin doesn't just talk the talk, she walks the walk."
In addition to extensive fundraising for pro-life candidates, the Susan B. Anthony List will implement "When Women Vote, Pro-Life Candidates Win!"-- a sophisticated voter mobilization program that will target 1.4 million pro-life women voters through mail, radio and phone-banking across eight battleground states: Colorado, Ohio, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. The Susan B. Anthony List plans to invest over $6 million in its 2008 efforts.
Since its founding, the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund has helped elect 75 pro-life candidates to the House, seven to the Senate, and seven to other statewide offices across the country.
The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of Americans, over 148,000 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.
