Election 2018: NARAL pledges $5 million to pro-abortion candidates for the House of Representatives

The pro-abortion group NARAL has announced plans to spend $5 million dollars to “Pro-Choice Majority Makers,”to advance candidates fighting for ‘our values, our future, our vote,'” said the group in a new statement.

“NARAL is investing in diverse candidates up and down the ballot in 19 states, including spending $5 million on mail, phones, digital ads, door to door canvassing, TV ads, and rallies to hold anti-choice candidates accountable and lift up pro-choice champions. The program will focus on activating voting blocs in swing districts, primarily female suburban voters in key states.”

Their largest campaign spending plan yet is targeting the battleground states of California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

NARAL was built for this moment. Never before have our rights and freedoms been under greater attack and never before have we had greater opportunity to fight back and win,” said Ilyse Hogue, NARAL Pro-Choice America president. “Our diverse membership, and voters across the spectrum, know what’s at stake in this election. That’s exactly why we’re already seeing energy and enthusiasm like we have never seen before and we anticipate that will only pick up as Election Day nears. We’re backing candidates who not only share America’s values on reproductive freedom, but are ready, willing, and eager to take on the fight for the rights of women and families to the halls of Congress. Our members are our secret weapon — they knock on more doors, make more calls than anyone else, and vote in unprecedented numbers. They’ve mobilized for pro-choice champions such as Susan Wild in Pennsylvania and most recently, Stacey Abrams in Georgia, and they’re ready to turn out the vote in November for candidates who will advance our values and our futures.”

NARAL has always been known for smart, strategic investments and programming, and that’s the strength of this plan,” said NARAL Political Director Nicole Brener-Schmitz. “We’re tapping into the power of our 1.5 million diverse member-activists and making investments into building people power in critical races across the country. By targeting key voting blocs in crucial swing states, we’re engaging voters in the fight to build on our clear momentum, take back the House with a pro-choice majority, and expand on the already impressive work we’ve done to defend our essential rights.”

“Voters are shocked when they find out how these guys are voting,” NARAL president Ilyse Hogue said. “When you tell them, at the very least it depresses their enthusiasm for supporting them. At best, it moves them toward another candidate.”

Among their targets are Reps. Steve Knight of California, Mike Bishop of Michigan, and Steve Chabot of Ohio, all of whom are cosponsors of the Life at Conception Act.
