SBA List to Co-Sponsor ATR Debate To Press RNC Chair Candidates on Pro-life Priorities

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) announced SBA List’s co-sponsorship of a debate among candidates for Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman to be held on Monday, January 3, 2011.  The event will take place in the Ballroom of the National Press Club and stream live online at RNCdebate.org between 1:00pm and 2:30pm ET.

“It is critical that the next RNC chairman sincerely recognize the electoral power of the pro-life movement, can articulate its message, and is prepared to advance its priorities,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “We look forward to vetting the candidates on Life through thoughtful questioning and open discussion.”

“The actual vote for RNC Chairman will be made by the 168 members of the Committee, but the impact will be felt by all,” said Grover Norquist, president of ATR.  “Therefore, every activist should play a role in questioning the candidates and communicating with RNC members who cast votes…just like lobbying your Congressman and Senators.  We encourage everyone to visit RNCdebate.org in the coming days to submit and vote on questions.”

Event details are as follows:
