The SBA List Candidate Fund supports "pro-life" female candidates, as well as "pro-life" male candidates who run against "pro-choice" female candidates.
"Our focus is supporting pro-life women," said SBA spokesperson Joy Yearout in an interview with the KY3 Political Notebook. "Obviously Congressman Hulshof is pro-life, but she is like the ideal candidate we seek to support, because our mission is to support pro-life women," Yearout added.
Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser said Steelman's recent "Life is Precious Initiative" helped prompt the group's endorsement.
“Sarah Steelman is dedicated to representing all Missouri citizens, born and unborn. Sarah is a passionate advocate for women and unborn children and we are pleased to support her candidacy for Missouri Governor," said Dannenfelser.
The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of over 145,000 Americans, residing in all 50 states. Yearout said the announcement would be sent to all of its supporters. She said it was too early to elaborate on the role the PAC would have in the campaign.
