Who Abortion Rights Group NARAL Wants to Be Florida's Next Governor
“As with every election year, all eyes are on Florida.”
That was the message regarding a potential future fight for abortion rights at Wednesday’s Gwen Graham event in Miami.
Graham gathered with supporters to accept the endorsement of NARAL, one of the nation’s largest pro-choice political action committees.
NARAL National Political Director Nicole Brener-Schmitz spoke at the event, emphasizing the group’s focus on Florida. She called the gubernatorial race “one of the most important elections in the 2018 cycle.”
That’s due in part to the recent retirement announcement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.
His decision to retire led some to fear a justice appointed by President Donald Trump would join the court’s other four conservative justices in overturning Roe v. Wade. Indeed, Graham spoke out about that concern in the days following his announcement.
