Last Friday Susan B. Anthony List and its partner, Women Speak Out PAC, drove across sunny Florida to announce plans for the 2020 Campaign at press conferences with local pro-life activists in Tampa and Orlando.
Our comprehensive effort to work with Florida coalition partners to re-elect President Trump includes boots on the ground, voter contact mail, phone calls, and paid advertising. The campaign is part of SBA List’s overall $52 million budget for the 2019-2020 cycle.
As of this morning, the SBA List ground team has already visited more than 190,120 homes across Florida! The team, led by State Director Laurie Lee and field directors Chrissy Blevio, Eileen Escalante, Jacqueline Debs, & Mollie Ewing, is currently active in Orlando, Jacksonville, the Tampa Bay area, the greater Miami area, and Southwest Florida.
At our press events last week, spokeswomen noted the release of Women Speak Out PAC’s “Party of Death” ad, which aired in the Tampa and Orlando markets to complement the timing of the announcement. SBA List’s National Campaign Chair Jill Stanek, who cared for a newborn baby who survived a failed abortion, also shared her powerful story to raise awareness to the reality of babies born alive and left to die.
We were pleased to be joined by local pro-life leaders such as Ana Hidalgo Stooks, Executive Director of Guiding Star Tampa Women’s Care, Brad Mattes, Ryan Neuhaus of Students for Life Action, John Stemberger, President of Florida Family Action, and Kathy Gibson, Orange County State Republican Committeewoman.

I invite you to check out some of the coverage from the events at WUSF News & NBC Univision, who spoke with one of our Spanish canvassers about the impact of the life issue in the upcoming election. Our focused, battle-tested voter outreach method will ensure we reach the voters who can provide President Trump the winning margin on Election Day.
