PPAF endorses Diana DiZoglio for Auditor, adds 16 Senate endorsements and 91 House endorsements ahead of the November 8th General Election 

BOSTON – Today, the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts (PPAF) announced its final round of state and legislative endorsements for the 2022 election, backing Diana DiZoglio for State Auditor and an extensive group of Senate and House incumbents and newcomers who are committed to advancing reproductive rights, abortion access, comprehensive sex education, and health equity across the Commonwealth. 

PPAF had previously endorsed Maura Healey for Governor, Kim Driscoll for Lt. Governor, and Andrea Campbell for Attorney General, who each won their primaries in September. Healey and Driscoll’s historic ticket creates the opportunity for Massachusetts to become the first state in the nation to be led by two female elected executive leaders. 

"We are proud to have a strong pro-reproductive health majority in our state legislature, reflected in the fact that we’ve made 30 Senate endorsements and 121 House endorsements this cycle, but this is not a time to take any vote or any seat for granted,” said Dr. Nate Horwitz-Willis, Executive Director of the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts. “With this group of candidates, we have the opportunity to re-elect proven champions for reproductive freedom and elect many new members who will fight tirelessly to make sexual and reproductive health care affordable and accessible to all in Massachusetts.” 

Over the next several weeks, PPAF will campaign for endorsed candidates in key races to elect or re-elect reproductive health champions, including Becca Rausch, Julian Cyr, Jake Oliveira, Natalie Higgins, Jim Hawkins, Tram Nguyen, Teresa English, Brendan Roche, James Arena-DeRosa, Dawne Shand, Kevin Kalkut, Michael Kushmerek, Emmanuel Dockter, and Stephen Fishman.
