Carson City, NV (LifeNews.com) — Another pro-life group has climbed on board with the other pro-life organizations supporting Sue Lowden, who is seeking the Republican nomination to challenge pro-abortion Senate Leader Harry Reid in Nevada. Lowden faces Sharon Angle, who also has the backing of some pro-life advocates.
And the two face off next Tuesday against Danny Tarkanian in what has been a close election for the GOP nomination to take on Reid.
Today, Jeremy McNeil, director of the Nevada Right to Life PAC, said his group is supporting Lowden.
Nevada Right to Life PAC is pleased that support for unborn life has been a focal point of the Republican Senate primary this year, McNeil said. Given the strong pro-life credentials of the three leading Republican candidates, making a decision who to endorse was difficult.
Replacing pro-abortion Senator Harry Reid with a pro-life senator is imperative, McNeil said.
He added, Harry Reid has consistently advocated a radically pro-abortion agenda. He was instrumental in blocking an amendment to prevent the federal government from subsidizing health plans that cover abortion on demand and voted to remove a previous ban on funding organizations that promote abortion overseas.
Sue Lowden is an excellent choice for United States Senate. In our estimation, Sue Lowden represents the best opportunity to defeat Harry Reid in November, McNeil said. We also believe she is the candidate who will be most effective in the passage of federal pro-life legislation. Nevada Right to Life PAC whole-heartedly supports her candidacy.
Last month, Concerned Women for America’s political action committee endorsed Sharon Angle.
Concerned Women PAC endorses Sharron Angle because she stands resolutely on the issues, such as family values, protection of the unborn," Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women PAC, said. "Sharron provides the clearest contrast to liberal Harry Reid.
But the Susan B. Anthony List is in Sue Lowden’s corner.
Earlier this month, SBA List launched a $50,000 radio ad campaign highlighting Lowden’s pro-life record, and the ad is part of a $1 million effort to urge Nevada voters to support her.
"Sue Lowden is a committed pro-life leader, exactly the kind of leader for unborn children and women that we urgently need in the U.S. Senate," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the organization.
