NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Statement on Endorsement Process in 48th District Democratic Primary

Last night, Atima Omara's campaign for Democratic nominee in the 48th House District stated that NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia had endorsed her candidacy. This is not true.

NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia PAC rarely endorses in primary elections, particulalry in cases - such as this - of multiple pro-choice candidates with no established voting records. Consistent with our process, we specifically told all candidates in this race that we would not be endorsing.

That's why we were extremely disappointed to have our name and endorsement inaccurately represented last night. As one of the leading political pro-choice organizations in Virginia, we value ourselves on our prestigous endorsement process and take pride in supporting pro-choice candidates. Deliberate or not, our trust was violated in this process.

Again, we have not endorsed any candidate in the 48th district democratic primary, nor will we. We hope that the eventual nominee shares our belief in the protection of women's health and rights, and we look forward to working with this person in the Virginia House of Delegates.
