SBA List Spends $215,000 in High Priority California Senate Race
May 26, 2010
WASHINGTON, (christiansunite.com) -- Today, the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life group, launched a $215,000 independent expenditure campaign highlighting the strong pro-life stance of California Senate candidate Carly Fiorina. Leading up to the state primary election on June 8th, the SBA List will educate voters through an aggressive online advertising and e-mail campaign, targeted calls to 600,000 registered voters and direct fundraising from its membership.
Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser said of the education effort:
"Carly Fiorina is the perfect pro-woman, pro-life contrast to Barbara Boxer. The Susan B. Anthony List is dedicating significant resources in the final two weeks of the primary to educate California voters about Fiorina's strong pro-life position and ability to beat Boxer in November.
"California is burdened with two female Senators who claim to represent women by pushing their radical, pro- abortion agenda, yet polling clearly shows that more and more Americans are calling themselves pro-life. Carly Fiorina is uniquely poised to be a leader for the unborn and for women in the U.S. Senate, ushering in a new brand of 'feminism' that harkens back to its roots in the suffragettes and recognizes that the rights of one are not built on the broken rights of another."
The June 8th California Republican primary will determine who will challenge 18-year pro-abortion incumbent Senator Barbara Boxer in the general election. As the EMILY'S List-endorsed candidate, Senator Boxer is the most aggressive champion of abortion rights in Congress and makes a Fiorina match- up ideal in the upcoming general election.
The Susan B. Anthony List plans to spend $6 million on voter education in the midterm elections, including $3 million on key Senate races, $1 million in bundled direct candidate contributions from SBA List members and $1 million on its plan to target "pro-life" Democrats who voted for abortion funding in the health care bill.
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.
