Carroll Endorsed By NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC
NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC today announced its endorsement of State Senator Morgan Carroll for U.S. House. Carroll is challenging anti-choice incumbent Rep. Mike Coffman in CO-06.
“Morgan Carroll has spent her life fighting for Colorado’s hardworking families and has been a champion for the reproductive freedoms of all Americans. We are proud to support Morgan in her campaign for Congress and to stand with her as she fights efforts to restrict Americans’ constitutional right to choose,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “While Morgan is a proven fighter for our reproductive freedom, Congressman Coffman has time and again acted to restrict our reproductive freedom and deny women access to the full range of health options. With our reproductive rights under attack like never before, we need someone who will take on the tough fights in Washington and deliver real results for Colorado. Morgan Carroll is the champion that Colorado families need and we are proud to endorse her campaign for Congress.”
“Senator Carroll has consistently been a Champion for Choice, someone Colorado women and their families can count on to stand up for Colorado on reproductive rights,” said Karen Middleton, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado. “She received a 100% rating on our most recent NARAL Scorecard, as she has since she first got elected as a citizen-legislator. Morgan Carroll isn’t someone you have to ask to be on your side on reproductive rights, she just is—because it’s a priority to her. At a time when Congressional Republicans and Colorado Republicans are attacking a woman’s right to choose, the people of CD-6 need Morgan Carroll in Congress to fight back.
“Colorado voters have said over and over again they are pro-choice. Seven in ten Americans identify as pro-choice,” continued Middleton. “These are longstanding, mainstream Colorado values, and Congressman Coffman does not represent them or the people of CD-6. Morgan Carroll does, and we will do everything we can to help her win.”
