FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 25, 2016
NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC today announced its endorsement of former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores (NV-04). Flores, an outspoken defender of reproductive freedom who has shared her own abortion story as part of her advocacy, is seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge anti-choice GOP incumbent Cresent Hardy.
“Lucy Flores is a true champion for choice and we are proud to stand with her during her campaign for Congress,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Nevadans deserve leaders who not only understand that women have the constitutional right to choose an abortion, but who vocally and wholeheartedly champion those rights. With so many threats to Americans’ reproductive freedom coming from the anti-choice majority in Congress, we need champions like Lucy who will unapologetically fight to defend and expand our right to the full range of reproductive health options.”
NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC today also announced its endorsement of two other candidates for Congress, Angie Craig (MN-02) and Pramila Jayapal (WA-07).
