Maryland: Wynn Counters EMILY’s List With NARAL Nod

Less than a week after the powerful pro-abortion rights group EMILY’s List announced it was supporting his primary challenger, Rep. Albert Wynn (D) announced during a Democratic debate last week that he had earned the endorsement of another major abortion rights group, NARAL Pro-Choice America.

EMILY’s List’s endorsement of lawyer and community activist Donna Edwards is only the third time that the group has endorsed a challenger over a sitting Democratic incumbent. Endorsements by the group usually come with heavy financial backing.

“In the 15 years that he has represented his district in Congress, Rep. Wynn has voted pro-choice 126 times on 127 votes that dealt with women’s reproductive health,” NARAL President Nancy Keenan said in a statement.
