Influential Anti-Abortion Activist Endorses Haley In Iowa
Nikki Haley landed a surprise endorsement from one of Iowa’s most prominent campaign organizers and anti-abortion activists during a town hall on Friday afternoon.
“I was an undecided voter when I walked in here today and I am no longer an undecided voter,” said Marlys Popma, a top adviser on John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign. “I just wanted to give you my wholehearted endorsement and encourage everyone in this room to do the same thing,”
Popma encouraged other voters in the room to “be bold” and “don’t be afraid to support the person you want to support.”
“Let’s have the Nikki Haley explosion start in Jasper County,” Popma said, to applause.
Popma has twice served as president of Iowa Right to Life Committee, an anti-abortion group, and as a member of the RNC Rules Committee. She told reporters after the event that she appreciated Haley’s comments on abortion. The former South Carolina governor has voiced support for a ban on abortion at 15 weeks, but she has also said she is “not going to demonize this issue.”
