Challenger in California’s 50th Congressional District Earns Endorsement from Nation’s Leading Pro-Choice Advocacy Group
For Immediate Release: August 27, 2019
NARAL Pro-Choice America today endorsed Ammar Campa-Najjar in his campaign to represent California’s 50th Congressional District, a seat currently held by corrupt anti-choice Congressman Duncan Hunter.
“Ammar Campa-Najjar is a champion for reproductive freedom who is ready to fight for everyone’s ability to make their own decisions about pregnancy and abortion with the people they trust, free from interference by politicians,” said Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Californians deserve someone who will put their fundamental freedoms first. NARAL is proud to endorse Ammar’s campaign to bring the leadership that California women and families deserve to Congress.”
“I am grateful to have the support of NARAL,” said Campa-Najjar. “As a strong advocate for women’s rights, I’ll be a congressman who will vote to protect individual liberties and privacy, uphold Roe v Wade as the Constitutionally-recognized law of the land and do all I can to protect women’s reproductive freedom.”
Ammar Campa-Najjar is a native of East County who is running for Congress to be an independent voice for California’s 50th District. He is a business owner and former administration official who served in the Labor Department to make sure every working family had an opportunity to succeed. Unlike extreme anti-choice incumbent Duncan Hunter, Campa-Najjar will be a proud voice for reproductive freedom and fight back against anti-choice movement’s radical agenda.
NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates and chapters are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all. For more than 50 years, NARAL has worked to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. Since 1969, NARAL has made history, grown to over 2 million members, and met the moments that have defined this fight with action, power and freedom. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”
