NARAL Backs Patrick Murphy to Replace Marco Rubio
NARAL Pro-Choice America announced its support of U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Fla., in the race to replace U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., on Monday.
“Patrick Murphy has consistently fought to defend and expand Americans’ reproductive freedom and we are proud to stand with him in his race for U.S. Senate,” said Sasha Bruce, the senior vice president of campaigns and strategy for NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Patrick has been fearless in going up against the anti-choice majority in Congress and pushing back against the Republican-led smear campaign targeting Planned Parenthood and other health care providers. Patrick recognizes that access to a full-range of reproductive health services, including contraception and abortion care, is critical to ensuring American women can define and achieve their own success. Despite abortion rights being supported by seven in ten Americans, our reproductive freedom faces unprecedented threats across the country. That’s why Americans are demanding leaders who are true champions for choice, who will not only defend our reproductive rights but actively fight to expand them. Patrick Murphy is that champion and NARAL Pro-Choice America is proud to stand with him in his race for U.S. Senate.”
Murphy is taking on U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., attorney and Navy veteran Pam Keith and life coach Lateresa Jones in the Democratic primary.
