Democrats For Life Proud to Endorse Collin Peterson

 

January 31, 2020



WASHINGTON, DC –Democrats For Life of America (DFLA) has announced its proud endorsement of Collin Peterson. The organization cited his active leadership in the U.S. Congress and his longstanding independent voice putting the good of the people in his district first.

“Congressman Peterson has been a solid and reliable pro-life vote,” said Kristen Day, executive director of DFLA. “Further, he has done a tremendous job establishing himself as a representative of his district and not the Washington establishment. The consistency of the 7th Congressional District can be assured that he puts them first with each and every vote.”

As Chairman of the Agriculture Committee, he consistently protected the farms in his district and around the nation crafting the 2008 Farm Bill and a coalition to pass it. He has also had an established record of working across party lines for the good of the people. He proved his ability to put the people above partisanship.

“Congressman Peterson values bipartisan cooperation unlike the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) who should come clean with their goals – to elect Republicans,” said Day. “The Constituents of the 7th Congressional District of Minnesota should judge Congressman Peterson on his record, not on the skewed opinion of the NRTL who clearly values Republican votes over legislative leaders.”

The NRLC endorsed Peterson's opponent, who is the wife of the head of the local NRTL affiliate. According to Open Secrets, the National Right to Life Committee has not supported Democratic candidates since 2010 when they spent $3,204 to support Democratic candidates, which dwarfed the $2.1 million spent for Republican candidates and $22,860 spent against Democratic candidates.

“Pro-life voters need to rally behind Congressman Peterson and trust him and his record.,” said Day. “Without his valued voice within the Democrat Caucus, it silences us all.”

Democrats For Life of America was founded in 1999 to educate Democrats at the local, state, and national levels on pro-life policies, promote a pro-life plank in the Democratic Party platform and support legislation that fosters respect for all human life. Democrats for Life of America is one of over 200 member organizations of Consistent Life, an international network for peace, justice, and life.
