Somebody else is after Virginia Sen. Edd Houck (D-Spotsylvania).
A month after a group promoting “the Christian worldview in politics” declared its intention to defeat Houck, another anti-abortion organization said it was targeting the Senate Health and Education Committee chairman.
The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund announced Wednesday that it “will spend $25,000 on a campaign to expose incumbent State Senator Edd Houck’s extreme record on abortion.”
Craig Bieber, Campaign Manager for Sen. Edd Houck, responded by saying, “It’s these out-of-state special interest groups who are the real extremists. Their ultimate agenda is clearly to take away a woman’s right to choose and to make her own health care decisions.”
The fund also announced endorsements and financial support for four Republicans running for Senate: Bryce Reeves, Houck’s Republican challenger; Caren Merrick in the 31st District; Patricia Phillips in the 33rd; and incumbent Sen. Jill Vogel of the 27th.
