Florida Abortion Ballot Initiative is a Political Nightmare for Anna Paulina Luna and María Elvira Salazar

Today, the Florida Supreme Court announced that it is allowing a measure to protect abortion rights to be on the ballot in November. The ballot initiative’s petition got nearly one million certified signatures, with more than 150,000 of them from registered Republicans.

In response, DCCC Spokesperson Lauryn Fanguen released the following statement: 

“Today’s news is a serious blow for anti-abortion extremists Anna Paulina Luna and María Elvira Salazar. There’s no question that when abortion rights are on the ballot, Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike turn out to vote to protect their freedoms.

“Floridians know that Luna and Salazar can’t be trusted to defend their rights. While voters were mourning the loss of Roe v. WadeLuna and Salazar were celebrating the decision that has now led to chaos and heartbreaking stories across the country. However, Luna and Salazar certainly aren’t celebrating today – they know they’ll be held accountable for their anti-abortion records in November.”
