Springfield, VA — Today, NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia announced that they have endorsed Senator Dick Saslaw in his campaign for re-election. Saslaw serves as the Senate Democratic Leader and has a consistent record of supporting women’s health. The Senator has worked with his colleagues, both Democrat and Republican, to defeat measures that would undermine a woman’s right to control her own medical decisions. After examining Senator Saslaw’s 2015 voting record, NARAL Virginia has rated him as 100% pro-choice.
"Voters in the 35th district are incredibly lucky to have Dick Saslaw as their 100% pro-choice Senator," said Tarina Keene, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia. "Throughout his years of leadership in the Virginia Senate, Saslaw has proven time and again that he will stand up for women's health and rights, and he can be counted on to keep government out of Virginians personal, private medical decisions. NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia is proud to endorse Dick Saslaw for reelection, and we look forward to working closely with him in the years to come.”
