NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC Endorses Marshall in Nevada Special Election
Washington, D.C. – Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, announced that her organization’s political action committee proudly endorsed pro-choice state treasurer Kate Marshall to represent Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District.
“We proudly support Kate Marshall in her bid for Congress,” says Keenan. “The U.S. House of Representatives has waged a war on women’s reproductive rights. Marshall will be a voice for mainstream Americans as she stands up to attacks on reproductive health care. Anti-choice attacks on freedom and privacy come at the expense of focusing on job creation and working to alleviate the housing crisis facing states like Nevada.”
Marshall’s opponent is anti-choice, typical politician Mark Amodei, former state senator and chairman of the state Republican Party. Amodei has been vocal in his opposition to women’s reproductive rights as evidenced by his supported efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.
Keenan says NARAL Pro-Choice America will engage its more than 2,500 member activists in the district to draw a clear distinction between Marshall and her anti-choice opponent.
