The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List will make a five-figure investment in the primary race of pro-life Democrat Rep. Dan Lipinski (Ill.), the group announced on Friday.
Lipinski, a Catholic eight-term pro-life congressman from Illinois' third district, is facing a second consecutive primary challenge from pro-abortion candidate Marie Newman. The vote will be on March 17.
Newman, also a Catholic, has received support from national pro-abortion groups such as the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), Planned Parenthood, and EMILY's List, a group that works to get pro-abortion women candidates elected to offices around the country.
The Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) Candidate Fund already made the maximum-allowable $5,000 direct contribution to Lipinski's campaign in 2019, and has been orchestrating other donations to his campaign to be delivered all at once.
