Strong Pro-lifer Running in Competitive Primary to Replace the Last Pro-Abortion Republican in the House
Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced its endorsement for Jay Webber, running for Congress in New Jersey’s 11th congressional district. The primary to replace retiring Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R) will take place on June 5.
“Susan B. Anthony List is proud to endorse Jay Webber for Congress. His pro-life leadership is desperately needed in the 11th district which has for years been represented by Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen. Since the retirement of Pennsylvania’s Charlie Dent, Rep. Frelinghuysen is the last pro-abortion Republican in the U.S. House. This is an historic opportunity to elect a strong pro-life leader in the place of someone who routinely bucked his constituents to stand with the abortion lobby,” said SBA List VP of Government Affairs Marilyn Musgrave. “As a state Assemblyman, Jay has been a dedicated and passionate defender of unborn children. By contrast, two of his primary opponents support taxpayer funding for America’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood. Their radical support for the abortion lobby is dramatically out of step with the majority of Americans.”
Jay Webber accepted the endorsement saying:
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Susan B. Anthony List, an organization working tirelessly to defend the rights of the unborn. With the support of SBA List, I hope to go to Congress where I will work to protect unborn children and their mothers. I will always fight for those who do not have a voice.”
Jay Webber is an Assemblyman for New Jersey’s 26th legislative district. He previously served as Chairman of the New Jersey Republican Party. He is a recipient of the “Defender of the Family” legislative award from the New Jersey Family Policy Council and has a 100% pro-life voting record from New Jersey Right to Life. Jay and his wife, Johanna have seven children and live in Morris Plains, NJ.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, visiting more than 1.1 million homes in battleground states to defeat Hillary Clinton and maintain a pro-life Senate. SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. SBA List is a network of more than 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
