Planned Parenthood Action Fund Endorsements for 2020

What does it take to be endorsed by Planned Parenthood Action Fund?

In our largest-ever single wave of endorsements, Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorsed 90 federal candidates in 2020 House and Senate races. And this is just the beginning. Each of these seats is crucial to protecting our sexual and reproductive health and rights. In 2018, we helped elect a record number of sexual and reproductive health care advocates. Why? Because across the country, people are determined to get involved to elect champions who represent us. 

So we listened to our members across the country to learn who those champions are. These are the people who are listening closely to the stories of impacted people and pledging to go above and beyond to protect and expand health care. And the good news is: this list is just the start. Stay tuned for additional endorsements in the coming months.

Candidate Highlights

Just who are our candidate highlights? They are all over the map, and this is why we’re going to need Action Fund members to get involved. We’re placing an extra emphasis on “red-to-pink” candidates because it is crucial to flip the Senate and expand the pro-reproductive health majority in the House in 2020 by unseating anti-choice incumbents. Why? Because without a majority in the Senate, we cannot advance our issues, and are vulnerable on existential issues like judicial nominations. Despite the hundreds of bills introduced in 49 states in 2019 that would restrict or ban abortion, local champions have helped keep the vast majority of them at bay. It's time to increase our number of champions in Washington while we have this incredible momentum going. 

We’re also centering “frontline” candidates, who are our most vulnerable champions in the House and Senate who need to know we have their backs, because they’ve proved they have ours. 

Finally, we’re highlighting candidates who are consistently the tip of the spear in the fight for access to affordable reproductive care, and who face incredible odds. Thank you all for the hard work you do: we see you, Planned Parenthood Action Fund is proud to endorse you.
