Penny Nance, the chief executive officer of Concerned Women for America, today endorsed Alaska Republican Kelly Tshibaka for the U.S. Senate. Nance announced her support for Tshibaka in her personal capacity. The endorsement comes just a few days after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade with the Dobbs decision. Nance also noted the arrival of Democrat Pat Chesbro, a staunch pro-abortion candidate, into the Alaska Senate race.
Nance issued the following statement:
“I am honored to endorse Kelly Tshibaka for the U.S. Senate in the great state of Alaska. Kelly will work to protect innocent life and their mothers. Kelly will stand against the growing number within the Democratic Party who support abortion-on-demand up to the moment of birth, disguised as a woman’s ‘right to choose.’ Kelly aligns with the values of Alaska’s women and will stand up for them against establishment politicians and the political consultant class in Washington, D.C., who are not looking out for them.
“Kelly will stand in stark contrast to Democrat Pat Chesbro, who is in lockstep with abortion activists and national Democrats in advocating for abortion all the way up to the moment of birth. But at least Chesbro is clear on what she believes because no one from either side trusts Lisa Murkowski on abortion.”
Tshibaka issued the following statement:
“I am honored and grateful to have the support of Penny Nance, such an upstanding leader for American women. I am proudly pro-life and will always fight to protect pre-born babies from the abortion industry that wants to wipe out entire generations of little girls and boys. There are many women in Alaska who feel forgotten and left behind, from all walks of life, all communities, and all experiences. This will be especially important, given the Dobbs decision and ongoing attempts by the left to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law. When I am Alaska’s next U.S. senator, I will fight for the forgotten Alaskans, and never forget who hired me to represent them.”
