Indeed, women spoke loudly last night, and I for one am praying that leaders in both parties are listening. The results were astounding — and some interesting things have emerged.
As of last night, there will be a few more pro-life female voices in the House.
|Alabama 2: Martha Roby beat Bobby Bright||Florida 24: Sandy Adams beat pro-abortion Rep. Susan Kosmas|
|Missouri 4: Vicky Hartzler defeated entrenched incumbent Rep. Ike Skelton||North Carolina 2: Renee Ellmers defied the pundits and beat incumbent Rep. Bob Etheridge|
|South Dakota: Kristi Noem defeated pro-abortion Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin||Tennessee 8: Diane Black won an open seat previously held by a Democrat.|
There were also a number of male candidates we endorsed who defeated pro-abortion candidates like:
Colorado 4: Cory Gardner defeated Betsey Markey
Illinois 11: Adam Kinzinger defeated Debbie Halvorson
Nevada 3: Dr. Joe Heck defeated Dina Titus
Pennsylvania 3: Mike Kelly defeated Kathy Dahlkemper
In Senate races, CWALAC candidate Rand Paul withstood late attacks on his faith in Christ to win a U.S. Senate seat in Kentucky, John Boozman defeated pro-abortion Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-Arkansas) and Marco Rubio overcame three candidates, including the flip-flopping Governor to win the Florida Senate seat.
|Rand Paul||John Boozeman||Marco Rubio|
And that’s only a fraction of the results from last night. Over the next few weeks and months, you can count on CWALAC to keep you informed about this new Congress and to make sure everyone of them hears from you.
I am so grateful for all of your support and can’t tell you how excited I am to share with you in this big win.
God bless you, and thanks for all you do.
