.- Saying that Nevada U.S. Senate hopeful Sharron Angle exemplifies “authentic, pro-life feminism,” the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund has endorsed her candidacy. The organization claims Angle will usher in “the year of the pro-life woman.”

“No one more than Sharron Angle exemplifies frontier feminism,” commented List president Marjorie Dannenfelser. “We are proud to put our political machine – built for the purpose of supporting women like Sharron – behind her race to beat Senator Harry Reid.”

Angle won the Tuesday Republican primary with 40 percent of the vote. She will face Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, in the November election.

The Susan B. Anthony List said it spent $150,000 on television ads and voter calls to pressure Sen. Reid to stop calling himself “pro-life.” The group has committed $1 million in voter education and mobilization efforts to unseat Reid.

"Sharron Angle is poised to unseat the leader of the Senate and the key proponent of Obama's health care plan that included taxpayer funding of abortion,” Dannenfelser claimed. “We applaud Nevada voters for taking steps to support authentic, pro-life feminism with last night's vote… Sharron Angle will help to usher in the year of the pro-life woman and win back critical margins in the Senate."

A former state legislator, Angle unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2006. The issues section of the candidate’s website was not accessible as of Wednesday afternoon. However, a cached Google copy dated June 6 read “All human life is precious, regardless of location, age, infirmity, or degree of dependence. Sharron Angle is the only candidate, in this senatorial race, holding a pro-life position.”
