The Susan B. Anthony List and Women Speak Out, its affiliate super PAC, are prepared to spend $52 million to help re-elect President Donald Trump and protect Senate Republicans’ majority, Politico reports.

The group steadily has increased its spending during election years, spending $18 million on advertising and voter outreach in 2016, followed by $32 million in 2018. The organization is headed by Marjorie Dannenfelser, whose husband works in the White House as a public liason official, and who previously demanded a list of commitments from Trump before she agreed to have her group support him in the 2016 election.

“After the Billy Bush tapes came out, it was a trying time,” an unnamed official who works with the group told Politico. “But we continued to support him and what we have now is the most pro-life president in American history.”

This official went on to describe the upcoming election as “the ultimate high-stakes battle,” and that SBA List will start with large-scale canvassing operations in nine key states while buying digital ads and stepping up advocacy against access to abortion. The ground-level volunteers have been told to focus on not only traditional Republican voters, but also Hispanic voters and Democrats “who consider themselves pro-choice but see extreme positions like support for late-term abortion, infanticide and abortion activists posing as federal judges as a bridge too far,” according to a memo on the group’s work acquired by Politico.

“As we have in the last three election cycles, we anticipate that SBA List-Women Speak Out PAC efforts will impact tens of thousands of votes in key races, providing the margin of victory,” the memo reads.
