Washington, D.C. – Today Susan B. Anthony List’s Candidate Fund PAC announced its endorsement of Congressman Don Bacon for re-election in Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District.
“As a longtime serviceman, Congressman Bacon knows that the foundational right to life makes America special and is worth defending,” said the Honorable Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs. “In Congress, he has cosponsored legislation to stop late-term abortions and to protect babies who survive failed abortions, earning him an ‘A’ on our National Pro-Life Scorecard for steadfast leadership. In contrast, his opponent Kara Eastman is backed by radical abortion groups that promote abortion on demand through birth, paid for by taxpayers – an agenda that is dramatically out of step with Nebraskan values. Congressman Bacon has defeated her before and will do so again, with the strong support of pro-life voters. We are proud to endorse Congressman Bacon and encourage his constituents to send him to Washington once again to fight Pelosi’s dangerous agenda.”
Don Bacon was first elected to Congress in 2016. He is a cosponsor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, the Preventing Maternal Deaths Act, and the Conscience Protection Act, as well as legislation to stop taxpayer funding of abortion.
Bacon is a former United States Air Force Brigadier General, serving from 1985-2014. During his service, he received the Distinguished Service Medal, two Legion of Merit awards, two Bronze Stars, and was selected as Europe’s top Air Force wing commander in 2009. He and his wife Angie and their four children live in Papillion, Nebraska.
SBA List is a network of more than 837,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
