FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 19, 2007 CONTACT: (703) 875-3370

Washington, D.C. – Today the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund, a national pro-life Political Action Committee, announced a special early round of congressional candidate endorsements for the 2008 election cycle:

Melissa Hart (PA-04)

Robert Latta (OH-05)

Sue Myrick (NC-09)

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL-18)

Jim Ryun (KS-02)

Jean Schmidt (OH-02)

Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser commented on the early endorsements:

“The Susan B. Anthony List is proud to endorse these dedicated pro-life leaders who need our support more than ever to represent all Americans, born and unborn, in the halls of Congress.”

Several of the endorsed candidates face early challenges in the 2008 cycle. Robert Latta is the Republican candidate for the upcoming December 11th Special Election to replace the late Paul Gillmor in Ohio’s 5th district. Incumbent Representative Jean Schmidt will confront a primary challenge in March of next year. Former Representatives Hart and Ryun expect to engage in competitive primary races in April and August, respectively, as they seek to regain their seats in Congress.

“Susan B. Anthony List members are eager to support dedicated pro-life heroes when they need it most — right now,” said Dannenfelser. “The consequences of disengagement are dire. The lives of women and their unborn babies are on the line, and the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund is ready to defend them at the ballot box.”

Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund endorsements are posted on the newly launched website,, which allows Susan B. Anthony List members to bundle contributions for endorsed candidates, access political updates about key Congressional races, register to vote and engage in pro-life advocacy efforts.

The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund will continue to consider pro-life congressional and statewide candidates for endorsement throughout 2008. The SBA List Candidate Fund supports pro-life female candidates, as well as pro-life male candidates who run against pro-choice female candidates. The next round of endorsements is scheduled to be announced in early 2008.

The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of Americans, over 142,000 residing in all 50 states, dedicated to mobilizing, advancing, and representing pro-life women in politics. Its connected Candidate Fund increases the percentage of pro-life women in the political process.
