Pro-Choice House Candidate Stands Firm

California Democratic US House candidate Lois Capps is appearing in an ad declaring her stance as a pro-choice candidate. In the ad, Capps claims, “outside interest groups are now attacking me … So let’s be clear: I am strongly pro-choice. My opponent opposes a woman’s right to choose.” The commercial, now airing, is a direct rebuttal to attacks by a right-wing, Washington DC-based group.

The conservative Campaign for Working Families launched its own commercials, degrading Capps for her pro-choice views. Republican candidate Todd Harris is not running commercials due to a lack of campaign funds.
