Susan B. Anthony’s fund endorses Trump-endorsed Kelly Tshibaka in Alaska

The Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America Nominee Fund on Wednesday announced its endorsement of Trump-endorsed Kelly Tshibaka for 21-year-old pro-impeachment incumbent Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).

The endorsement represents a blow to Murkowski, who has struggled to pass as a conservative. After the Supreme Court ruled abortion was a state right in June, Murkowski voiced her opposition, reiterating what she claims is her support for abortion “until fetal viability,” so even as Tshibaka claims that Murkowski supports “taxpayer-funded abortion on demand up to the moment of birth.
“Today the Supreme Court overturned 50 years of precedent by choosing to strike down Roe vs. Wade. The rights under deer that many women have relied on for decades — including a wife’s right to choose — are now gone or under threat in many states,” the Republican establishment said.

Following Susan B. Anthony’s endorsement of Tshibaka, Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA Pro-Life America, issued a strong statement in support of the Trump-endorsed nominee:

Kelly Tshibaka is a trailblazer whose pro-life, pro-women leadership will be a welcome addition to the US Senate. We are proud to support her. Pro-abortion Democrats are “eager” to destroy the Senate’s obstruction to mandate abortion on demand up to birth nationwide, paid for by taxpayers — a sweeping agenda that the overwhelming majority of Americans reject.

It is more important than ever that Alaskans have strong leaders who stand up for their values. As a mother of five and the first member of her working-class family to pursue a college education, Kelly knows how important it is to protect unborn children and support mothers, including supporting pregnancy centers that serve d countless families in communities across the country. Kelly will bring compassion and common sense to Washington, and we strongly encourage Alaskans to support her on November 8.

The endorsement was celebrated by the Tshibaka campaign as another watershed moment in Alaska’s tight Senate race. Tshibaka said of Susan B. Anthony’s endorsement: “Voters will never question where I stand because I will protect life and oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, while supporting the access to birth control without a prescription, both over the counter and by mail.”

“This is in stark contrast to Democrats and incumbent Senator Lisa Murkowski who support taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand up to the time of birth, much like abortion laws in North Korea and China,” Tshibaka criticized. “As the next senator from Alaska, I will always represent the values ​​of the people of our great state.”

Polls show the Alaska Senate race is tight between Murkowski and Tshibaka. But Tshibaka seems to have the momentum. In recent weeks, three former US Senate candidates have banded together behind Tshibaka, not the 21-year-old incumbent. Candidates suspending their campaigns and supporting Tshibaka are exactly what she needs to win because of Alaska’s ranked-choice voting system, which passes votes from eliminated candidates to stronger remaining candidates as the voting progresses. Their early departure from the race and Tshibaka’s endorsement will impact how many votes Tshibaka will get over Murkowski as rounds two and three come around.

“Our campaign continues to muster grassroots support, and our growing unified front will retire Lisa Murkowski after 21 years in the Senate,” Tshibaka remarked of the endorsements.
