Win Comes After NARAL Members Threw Their Support Behind Sisolak
For Immediate Release: November 7, 2018
Following last night’s victory, NARAL Pro-Choice America congratulates Steve Sisolak. NARAL endorsed Sisolak, and is proud to see him lead Nevada in the fight for women and families.
“NARAL couldn’t be more proud to congratulate Steve Sisolak on his election as Nevada’s next Governor. With Steve at the helm, women know they have a champion at the highest levels of government—someone who will build on the progress the state has made to protect and expand reproductive freedom,” said NARAL President Ilyse Hogue.
“As one of the largest membership organizations in the state, NARAL Nevada members proudly played a big role in this race, pouring their energy into this fight and mobilizing behind Steve’s commitment to our shared values. Steve Sisolak will stand with women and families of Nevada, and we’re proud to have helped push him across the finish line.”
Steve Sisolak would be the first Democratic, pro-choice governor to lead Nevada in 20 years.
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’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.
