“Carla has the experience and proven leadership to stand up for the innocent unborn and their mothers”
Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced its endorsement of Carla Nelson for U.S. House of Representatives in Minnesota’s first congressional district.
“We are pleased to endorse Carla Nelson, a principled leader with a solid pro-life voting record,” said former U.S. Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs. “Carla has been a dedicated and passionate public servant for years, starting as a teacher and then as an advocate for families and children in Minnesota’s legislature. She has the experience and the proven leadership to stand up for the innocent unborn and their mothers in Washington.”
Carla Nelson accepted the endorsement saying:
“I am humbled to receive Susan B. Anthony List’s endorsement. As a teacher, I was trusted to nurture and protect some of Minnesota’s youngest citizens. Political elites have failed our families by allowing precious lives to be discarded at will. I am committed to defending the most vulnerable and will fight to give our children – born and unborn – their future back.”
Nelson is a small business owner and former teacher. She served in the Minnesota House of Representatives from 2003-2005 and in 2010 was elected to the state Senate, where she has served as Assistant Minority Leader.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, knocking on more than 1.1 million doors 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, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
