NARAL Pro-Choice America Congratulates Tammy Baldwin
Washington, D.C. – Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, congratulated Rep. Tammy Baldwin for her successful bid to represent Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate.
“I congratulate the Baldwin campaign for a job well done,” said Keenan. “Sen.-elect Baldwin’s victory is another sign that voters are tired of the divisive War on Women. We know we can count on leaders like Tammy Baldwin to protect and defend women’s reproductive freedom. Baldwin has been a strong pro-choice champion in the House and we look forward to continuing work with her as she joins the U.S. Senate.”
NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC endorsed and contributed $10,000 to Rep. Tammy Baldwin’s campaign for U.S. Senate.
During the 2012 election cycle, NARAL Pro-Choice America and NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC spent more than $3.3 million to support President Obama, incumbent pro-choice senators and congressional representatives and challengers running in states and districts throughout the country. This amount includes more than $700,000 in direct contributions to federal candidates and committees; nearly $200,000 on member communications; and more than $1.3 million on independent-expenditure activity.
NARAL Pro-Choice America’s independent expenditure program included mail, phones, television, and Internet advertising to reach 338,020 targeted pro-choice Obama defector voters in 25 counties within nine battleground states: CO, FL, IA, NC, NH, NV, OH, VA, WI. These “defectors” are women voters who supported President Obama in 2008, but were unsure or not planning to support his re-election.
