EMILY’s List Endorses West Virginia Senate Candidate

EMILY’s List, an organization that backs female Democratic candidates who support abortion rights, has endorsed West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant’s bid for Senate.

“I wanted to personally let you know that today we’re endorsing Natalie Tennant for the U.S. Senate race in West Virginia,” EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock wrote to the group’s supporter email list.

“And if Democrats are going to keep hold of the U.S. Senate, this is a race that we have to win.”

Tennant will likely face off against Republican Rep. Shelley Moore Capito in the general election. This race will choose a successor to retiring Rep. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va.

The race is currently rated Lean Republican by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.

    Hmm, a group that endorses pro-choice candidates but always picks the democrat over the republican (Capito is pro-choice). I think their agenda is more than just protecting your right to murder a baby.

  • Socialism is Organized Evil

    Our trust in liberty rests on the understanding that it will, in the long run, unleash much more potential for good than for evil.

  • Defend Liberty

    As we move up the biological scale, individual differences between creatures of the same species become more and more apparent until the most individuality is exhibited by humans, at the top of the scale.

  • Robert M. McAdam

    I wish that Ms. Schriock’s mother was as vigorously Pro Choice as Ms. Schriock is.
