WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tonight the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) Candidate Fund declared victory when Elise Stefanik won the primary election for New York’s 21st congressional district. The Candidate Fund previously endorsed Stefanik in March.
“Tonight voters in the North Country sent a strong message in supporting this accomplished and articulate pro-life leader. Elise Stefanik is the right choice for this historically pro-life district. The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund is thrilled to see her one step closer to Washington,” said SBA List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Elise will serve as a voice for women, unborn children, and pro-life taxpayers in Washington. Her energy and passion for promoting the dignity of each human life will make her an excellent addition to the House Pro-life Women’s Caucus.”
Born and raised in Upstate New York, twenty-nine year old Stefanik is a graduate of Harvard University. Stefanik served as Policy Director of the 2012 Republican National Committee Platform and as the director of Vice Presidential Debate Prep to Congressman Paul Ryan in 2012. She returned to New York and works in North Country sales, marketing and management at her family’s plywood products business. Stefanik will face Democratic nominee Aaron Woolf in the General Election.
The Susan B. Anthony List and its Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, are dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women at all levels of government. The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
