All seven NARAL-endorsed candidates won their Democratic primaries for Nevada’s State Legislature and will now advance to the November general election: Liz Becker (SD-18), Shondra Summers-Armstrong (AD-06), Cameron “C.H.” Miller (AD-07), Dr. David Orentlicher (AD-20), Natha Anderson (AD-30), and incumbent Assembly Members Rochelle Nguyen (AD-10) and Howard Watts (AD-15).
In response, NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada Director Caroline Mello Roberson released the following statement:
“NARAL congratulates our Nevada candidates on their victories in the Democratic primary. With the stakes for abortion access higher than ever, it’s essential that our elected officials continue to fight fiercely to protect and expand reproductive freedom. The pro-choice majority in Carson City has been instrumental to safeguarding our Silver State values of trusting Nevadans to make their own decisions about pregnancy, free from political interference. NARAL was proud to support these seven candidates in the primary election and we look forward to sending them to the legislature in November.”
NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates and chapters are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all. For more than 50 years, NARAL has worked 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. Since 1969, NARAL has made history, grown to over 2.5 million members, and met the moments that have defined this fight with action, power and freedom. 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.”
