NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada Announces Endorsement of
Kate Marshall for Lieutenant Governor
Las Vegas, Nev. — Today, NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada announced their endorsement of Kate Marshall in her bid to become Nevada’s next Lieutenant Governor. Kate has been a tireless advocate for the right of Nevada women to make their own medical decisions, and NARAL’s 38,000 members statewide will fight to make sure she gets elected.
“Kate Marshall has been a consistent and outspoken champion for expanding access to critical reproductive care for Nevada’s women and families, and we are proud to support her in her race for Lt. Governor,” said Caroline Mello Roberson, State Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada. “The vast majority of Nevadans support a woman’s right to make her own medical decisions, and they deserve to have Kate Marshall representing their values and defending their rights in Carson City. Our members also understand the danger Nevada women face if anti-choice crusader Michael Roberson gets elected this fall, and we are excited to activate our unmatched ground game efforts to make sure that never happens.”
“The tens of thousands of NARAL members throughout Nevada are leading the fight to protect access to healthcare, and I am honored to receive their endorsement,” said Kate Marshall, candidate for NV Lieutenant Governor. “At a time when women are facing unprecedented attacks on their rights and ability to access healthcare, they deserve leaders who will stand up for them and get us back to focusing on the important issues impacting Nevada families like improving our economy and schools. The last thing Nevada needs is a Lieutenant Governor like Michael Roberson who will stop at nothing to attack a woman’s right to choose instead of working on ways to create a brighter future for our state. I look forward to working with NARAL NV throughout the campaign to spread our message to voters and win.”
NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”
