On Wednesday, Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s acting president, Alexis McGill Johnson, announced the organization is officially endorsing two candidates in Arkansas: Second Congressional District candidate Joyce Elliott and Third Congressional District candidate Celeste Williams.
In Arkansas, Planned Parenthood’s political action committee has been actively fundraising this year, and the organization already has endorsed candidates for the state legislature.
Last fall Planned Parenthood’s super PAC pledged to spend at least $45 million on the 2020 election, with four main goals:
- Defeat President Trump
- Flip the U.S. Senate from Republican to Democrat
- Maintain Democratic control over the U.S. House of Representatives
- Support liberal candidates in state races
