Team Sarah Response to Presidential Election Results

"Women can meet these challenges without sacrificing their femininity"

Comments by SBA List President and Team Sarah Co-Founder Marjorie Dannenfelser

WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 /Christian Newswire/ -- Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund President and Team Sarah Co- Founder Marjorie Dannenfelser commented on Tuesday's Presidential and Congressional election results:

"With the entire federal government under the control of one political party that is hostile to our values, clearly the women of Team Sarah face an intense battle on many fronts. If Governor Sarah Palin's historic candidacy proved anything, it is that women can meet these challenges without sacrificing their femininity. And thanks to Gov, Palin's leadership, there are more women in this battle than ever before.  The very women whom the women's movement had convinced were invisible now know their power.

The Susan B. Anthony List Voter Education and Mobilization Program contacted over one million pro- life voters in battleground states through radio, mail and phone-banking.  Overall, the program made over ten million voter contacts by mail and phone.  The Susan B. Anthony List raised over $650,000 for pro-life candidates in the 2008 cycle.  Since its founding, the nonpartisan Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund has helped elect 75 pro-life candidates to the House, seven to the Senate, and seven to other statewide offices across the country.

Team Sarah is a special project of the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund.  Team Sarah launched , a website for Palin supporters that has grown to over 44,000 members, produced "Wink, Wink," a web ad highlighting Barack Obama's associations, and hosted the nation's first Million Woman Townhall, a conference call featuring First Lady Laura Bush and other leading conservative women.

The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of Americans, over 150,000 residing in all 50 states, dedicated to mobilizing, advancing, and representing pro-life women in politics.  Its connected Candidate Fund increases the percentage of pro-life women in the political process.  Team Sarah is a grassroots coalition of diverse women dedicated to advancing Sarah Palin's Vice Presidential candidacy.
