WASHINGTON, ( -- Today the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund, a national pro-life political action committee, announced its endorsement of Anne Marie Buerkle, candidate for NY-25; Renee Ellmers, candidate for NC-02; Kristi Noem candidate for SD-AL, Star Parker, candidate for CA-37; Nikki Haley, candidate for SC-GOV; Jaime Herrera, candidate for WA-03, Rita Myer, candidate for WY-GOV and Diane Black, candidate for TN-06. SBA List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser said of the endorsements:

"The emerging Year of the Pro-Life Woman is the most resounding affirmation of the SBA List's mission since our founding. America is embracing authentic feminism -- one which returns to its suffragist, pro-life roots. These women are the brightest stars of a populist, pro-woman, pro-life grassroots movement that is determined to return the strength of femininity to feminism."

Referencing the diverse qualifications of pro-life legislators like Kristi Noem and pre-political successes of women like former nurse Rennee Ellmers, Dannenfelser said, "These women are leading the fight to reclaim an authentic feminism that embraces protections for unborn children. They are laying the groundwork for the coming generation of women leaders. All successful in their respective fields, these women are poised to shape the Congress and state governments hungry for authentic pro-life feminist leadership. They have shed the grievance-driven style of feminist leadership, opting for a positive, inclusive agenda which accommodates mother and child."

These eight women join a team of 22 other pro-life women candidates already endorsed this election cycle.

In the November general election, Anne Marie Buerkle will face incumbent Dan Maffei in NY-25, Renee Ellmers will challenge seven-term incumbent Bob Etheridge in NC-02, Kristi Noem will challenge EMILY's List-endorsed incumbent Stephanie Herseth Sandlin inSD-AL, Star Parker will challenge incumbent Laura Richardson for the CA-37, Nikki Haley will oppose Vincent Shaheen for the SC-GOV open seat. On August 5, Diane Black will face Lou Ann Zelnick and Jim Tracey in the TN-06 primary. Former state representative Jaime Herrera will face four other candidates in the August 14 WA-03 primary. Rita Myer will face four other candidates in the Wyoming gubernatorial primary on August 17.

The Susan B. Anthony List plans to spend $6 million on voter education in the midterm elections, including $3 million on key Senate races. 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.
