CA-Sen: California Pro-Life Council Endorses Carly Fiorina

California Pro-Life Council

The San Francisco Chronicle had the first mention last night of the endorsement.

Just got this scoop from California Pro Life Council czar Brian Johnston: The organization will endorse Carly Fiorina Tuesday over Orange County Assemblyman Chuck DeVore.

This is a big deal in conservative circles, as this is California’s largest single-issue pro-life group. When Fiorina got the nod recently from the Susan B Anthony Candidate List — think of it as the anti-Emily’s List — Team DeVore dismissed it as a DC-oriented group.(They’re also going to kick Carly $200,000, they told me.) Don’t worry, predicted Team DeVore, California pro-lifers would be behind the rock-ribbed conservative DeVore.

But this pro-life group, the California affiliate of the National Right to Life organization, isn’t. And the reason has to do with one thing: They think Fiorina has a better shot at winning. In the June primary and in the fall.

And, then, Jon Fleischman just posted the official endorsement statement.

This will be a significant endorsement for Carly Fiorina. Having been branded by Chuck Devore as a closet pro-choicer on abortion and a non-conservative moderate RINO, this should help dispel the misstatements.

Plus, the $200K campaign cash donation will help fuel Fiorina mailers in the last few weeks of the campaign.
