PERDUE VICTORY SHOWS POWER OF PRO-LIFE VOTE

National Right to Life Get-Out-The-Vote Campaign Helps Georgia Victory

WASHINGTON – With strong support from the National Right to Life Political Action Committee and the National Right to Life Victory Fund, the right-to-life movement retained a pro-life seat as pro-life David Perdue defeated Michelle Nunn in Georgia tonight in the race to fill the seat vacated by retiring pro-life Sen. Saxby Chambliss. National Right to Life, together with its affiliate, Georgia Life Alliance, reached out to voters across the state to lay out the right-to-life case against Michelle Nunn.

National Right to Life contacted more than 280,000 identified pro-life households in Georgia.
An additional 220,000 pieces of literature were hand-distributed by National Right to Life and Georgia Life Alliance local grassroots volunteers. In addition, nearly 100,000 pro-life households were called reminding them of the key differences between Perdue and Nunn. National Right to Life’s political committees also aired 4,105 radio ads on 170 stations statewide, including a significant ad buy on Spanish-language radio stations.

“National Right to Life looks forward to working with Senator-elect Perdue to advance the right-to-life cause in the U.S. Senate,”said Carol Tobias, National Right to Life president. “We know that when pro-life voters are engaged in the political process, pro-life candidates enjoy a significant advantage over their pro-abortion opponents. That held true in Georgia tonight.”
