Las Vegas, NV – Republican Presidential Candidate and presumptive nominee, Donald J. Trump, has reminded us just how extreme and anti-women today’s Republicans – including Congressman Heck and Sharron Angle – truly are. During an interview with MSNBC, Trump, who is adamantly anti-choice just like Congressman Heck and Sharron Angle, said that there “has to be some form of punishment” for women who have abortions.
Congressman Heck has stated publicly he will support Donald Trump if Trump wins the nomination. Angle? She cited the rise of Trump as one of the reasons she was planning a run for Senate.
“Nevadans deserve an answer from Sharron Angle and Congressman Heck on whether they agree with their Party’s presumptive nominee that women should be ‘punished’ for having an abortion,” said Sarah Zukowski, spokesperson for the Nevada State Democratic Party. “Considering both Angle and Congressman Heck oppose a woman’s right to choose, and their mutual support of Trump if he’s the Republican nominee, we wouldn’t be surprised if this is yet another issue where it’s hard to tell the two Republican Senate candidates apart.”
