65 of Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s 66 Endorsed Candidates Claim Victory After Super Tuesday

WASHINGTON — Results from Super Tuesday made clear the top issue on voters’ minds is access to health care, specifically sexual and reproductive health care. With historic turnout across the country, voters chose sexual and reproductive health champions in Democratic primary races as their future representatives in Congress and elsewhere. 

Planned Parenthood Action Fund congratulates the winners of these important races, including 65 of the 66 candidates endorsed by the Action Fund. 

Statement from Alexis McGill Johnson, acting president and CEO, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

“People across the country made it clear on Super Tuesday that they expect their elected officials to protect their access to sexual and reproductive health care. Planned Parenthood Action Fund congratulates all of the reproductive health champions who listened to voters and shared their vision for protecting people’s health and rights. The year could not be more critical to make sure our elected officials represent us. This morning, the Supreme Court heard arguments in an abortion case, and anti-abortion politicians continue trying to take away people’s access to essential sexual and reproductive health care. More than 13 million Planned Parenthood supporters are ready to fight for sexual and reproductive health and rights, and will stand by candidates up and down the ballot who are determined to enact bold policies.”

The Trump administration’s attacks on abortion, birth control, and other reproductive care have spurred backlashacross the country. A record-high 77 percent of Americanssay they do not want to see Roe v. Wade overturned, and there is no state where making abortion illegal is popular. Those elected in 2020 to Congress and to the White House will have the ability to make a difference for access to reproductive health and rights across the country.

Last year, over 300 abortion restrictions were introduced in nearly every state in the country. Reproductive rights supporters have been galvanized by these attacks — advocating for policies that would expand health care access and protect access to safe and legal abortion, with major legislation passing in Illinois, New York, and several other states.   


Planned Parenthood Action Fund is an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit membership organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The Action Fund engages in educational, advocacy and electoral activity, including grassroots organizing, legislative advocacy, and voter education.
