Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced its endorsement of Twinkle Cavanaugh for lieutenant governor of Alabama. The primary election will take place on June 5th, 2018.
“Susan B. Anthony List has a special calling to promote strong pro-life, pro-woman leaders like Twinkle Cavanaugh. We are proud to endorse her for lieutenant governor,” said former congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs. “Twinkle’s pro-life convictions are unshakeable. She will be a powerful advocate for unborn children and their mothers, as well as the taxpayers of Alabama in the role of lieutenant governor, which doubles as president of the state senate. We encourage pro-life voters to support her.”
Twinkle Cavanaugh accepted the endorsement saying:
“I am humbled by Susan B. Anthony List’s endorsement. Alabama is a profoundly pro-life state where the voters believe every life is precious and deserving of protection. I am deeply committed to the future of all our children, including those yet unborn. It will be a privilege to serve as lieutenant governor and stand up for these values at every opportunity.”
Twinkle Cavanaugh is president of Alabama’s Public Service Commission, an important role ensuring taxpayers’ confidence in local government. Previously, she was the first woman to serve as chair of the Alabama Republican Party. Twinkle and her husband Jeff have three children and two grandchildren. The Cavanaughs are active members of First Baptist Church in Montgomery, where they teach Sunday school and where Jeff serves as a deacon.
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.
