The Susan B. Anthony List on Friday announced its support for Christine O’Donnell in the race for Vice President Joe Biden’s former Senate seat, calling her “the clear pro-life leader in the GOP Primary.” O’Donnell, a marketing consultant and political commentator, is running against Rep. Mike Castle in the Sept. 14 Republican primary.
“Delaware families deserve the pro-life leadership Christine O’Donnell so capably provides,” SBA List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement. “Unlike her primary opponent who has an explicitly pro-abortion voting record, O’Donnell has expressed her strong determination to be a vocal advocate for women and unborn children in abortion debates on the floor of the U.S. Senate.”
The Susan B. Anthony List supports getting more women who oppose abortion elected to office. The group says it plans to spend $6 million on the midterm elections, including $3 million on key Senate races.
