STEUBENVILLE, OH. – Today American Majority Action and Susan B. Anthony List will hold a press conference prior to the Vice Presidential debate to launch their newly opened Ohio Life & Liberty Headquarters in Steubenville, OH. The field office will be a headquarters for pro-life and fiscally conservative Ohioans to connect with Ohio voters and educate them on President Obama’s extreme record on abortion, his attack on religious liberty, his irresponsible fiscal policies and the Obama Administration’s war on coal and domestic energy. Representatives from American Majority Action and the Susan B. Anthony List will address the media before hosting local activists for a debate viewing party at the headquarters.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of Susan B. Anthony List, said: “With just a handful of days left before voters choose a President and decide the makeup of the Senate, no state is more important than Ohio in determining the outcome. And in Ohio, nothing is more important at this point than directly connecting with voters to encourage turnout. The good news for Governor Romney and Josh Mandel is that a majority of Ohio voters agree with them on social and economic policy. We’re proud to partner with American Majority Action in this effort.”
Ned Ryun, President of American Majority Action, said: “We are thrilled to partner with the Susan B. Anthony List as we launch the Ohio Life and Liberty Headquarters in Steubenville this week. Both social and fiscal conservatives understand the threat that a second term for President Obama poses for our nation. We will target Ohioans concerned about the Obama Administration’s assault on economic freedom and energy independence, as well as President Obama’s unprecedented attack on the First Amendment and religious liberty. Working together, we will fire President Obama this November 6th in the state of Ohio.”
About American Majority Action: American Majority Action is a national 501(c)(4) issues-oriented organization dedicated to engaging citizens and mobilizing volunteers to promote free market principles and American individualism. AMA is founded on the belief that citizen engagement at the local, state and Federal levels can foster needed systemic change to preserve the American dream. At present, AMA has opened over fifteen Liberty Headquarters in five battleground states- FL, OH, PA, WI and VA—to boost conservative voter turnout this November 6th.
The Susan B. Anthony List and its connected super PAC, Women Speak Out PAC have run pro-life television spots across the media markets of Columbus, Cleveland-Akron, Dayton, and Youngstown, as part of a more than $1,025,000 television ad campaign in multiple swing states to educate voters on President Obama’s abortion record and urging voters to defeat him at the ballot box in November. Recently released polling data from the SBA List shows that President Obama loses support from likely swing voters once they are educated on his extreme abortion record. A majority of swing voters (54%) are less likely to vote for President Obama after learning that he voted against a law to give equal treatment to babies born alive after a failed abortion (35% much less likely). Key voter groups were also negatively impacted including independents (46%) and pro-choicers (43%).
