CatholicVote.org Endorses Carla Nelson for Congress
CHICAGO—CatholicVote.org announced their endorsement of Carla Nelson for Congress in Minnesota’s 1st District. CatholicVote.org President Brian Burch released the following statement:
“Carla Nelson has consistently been a steadfast ally of the unborn and working families while serving in the state legislature in Minnesota. Moreover, Washington D.C. desperately needs the input of strong pro-life women. For these reasons, we strongly encourage voters in this important district to support Carla Nelson for Congress — and for Catholics nationwide to support Nelson’s candidacy.
“This congressional race provides a rare opportunity in 2018 to flip a seat into pro-life hands. This district went for Trump by a whopping 15 percentage points. Unfortunately that margin wasn’t enough to deliver a win for that year’s GOP congressional nominee. By contrast, Carla Nelson was on the ballot in 2016 in a competitive state senate district and actually outperformed Donald Trump’s numbers.”
“Carla Nelson has the leadership and principles to deliver and win for families in the 1st district.”
