NARAL Pro-Choice America congratulates Dean Phillips in his election to represent Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District in Congress. NARAL members threw their support behind Phillips following NARAL’s endorsement, and couldn’t be more excited to celebrate tonight’s win.
“Tonight’s win shows that when candidates stand up for women and our essential rights—including the right to access abortion—they win,” said NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue. “NARAL members mobilized behind Dean Phillips because he made it clear that reproductive freedom should not be up for debate. The majority of Minnesotans support abortion access and they are lucky to have Dean’s representing them. Dean is committed to fighting for the rights of women, families, and all Americans, and we couldn’t be more proud to have an advocate like him in Congress.”
NARAL members made over 1.1 million calls to voters in phone banks all across the country, knocked on nearly 350,000 doors, sent almost 2 million pieces of mail, made more than 343,000 text messages, and held postcard parties, debate watch parties, and rallies in dozens of states. NARAL members vote at rate of 90 percent, so much of NARAL’s $5 million election program focused on not only mobilizing our members but expanding the number of pro-choice voters. NARAL’s “Pro-Choice Majority Makers” program included TV and digital advertising, direct mail, and a campaign to educate and engage suburban women voters across the country to help them understand what’s at stake if abortion is criminalized by anti-choice politicians.
