For Immediate Release: March 1, 2018
NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Susie Lee in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District. The suburban Las Vegas seat is currently open.
“We know Susie Lee will fight for Nevada women and against the anti-choice Republican agenda,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Nevada women and families don’t just want to see the status quo, they want to see access to reproductive healthcare expanded. Susie stands behind those values, and that’s why we are proud to endorse her campaign for Congress.”
“I’m proud to have the backing of NARAL in my campaign for Congress in Nevada’s 3rd District,” said Lee. “The stakes are high, and this election is critical for women and families in Southern Nevada and across the country. I look forward to working with NARAL to fight for women’s reproductive freedoms, affordable health care, pay equity, paid family leave, and economic security for families in our community.”
“Nevada is a pro-reproductive rights state, and southern Nevadans will have a Congresswoman who reflects those values in Susie Lee,” said Caroline Mello Roberson, Executive Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada. “We will be letting our members know that they should enthusiastically support her campaign for Congress.”
Susie Lee is a local education advocate and nonprofit leader who has a proven track record of achieving real results for families in her community. For over 20 years, Lee has launched and built nonprofit organizations, bringing people together from different backgrounds to find common sense solutions to the problems facing Nevada families.
