Washington, DC ─ Today the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund, a national pro-life political action committee, announced its endorsement of Mia Love for Utah’s 4th Congressional District.
“The SBA List is proud to endorse Mia Love for Utah’s fourth district. We hope to help send this rising star to Washington in the fall. She will be an ideal advocate for women and unborn children,” said Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Throughout her political career, Mia has kept the pro-life cause close to her heart. Her unique voice will be an excellent addition to the House Pro-life Women’s Caucus.”
In 2003, Love was elected as a city councilwoman in Saratoga Springs, Utah, becoming the city’s mayor in 2009. Born in New York to Haitian immigrants, Mia Love says she has lived the “American dream” and has committed her life to giving back.
The primary election for Love’s race is June 24. She has been endorsed by Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes, VIEW PAC, SHE PAC, Senator Mike Lee and former Representative Allen West. The SBA List previously endorsed Mia Love in her 2012 bid for Congress. If elected, she will be the first African-American Republican woman elected to Congress.
The Susan B. Anthony List, and its affiliated 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. The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
