Clark hits the road while Britt helps Cruz

House Minority Whip Katherine Clark is in North Carolina today campaigning for President Joe Biden’s reelection. Clark, the number two House Democrat, is taking part in a news conference on Biden’s record of protecting reproductive rights to mark the second anniversary of the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.

Clark has crisscrossed the country this year to highlight the importance of abortion rights to voters in key states. This cycle, the Massachusetts Democrat has held 12 events on the issue in Texas, Florida, New York, Illinois, Wisconsin, Arizona and Pennsylvania.

“America is at a crossroads. For the sake of our daughters and granddaughters, we must win the fight for freedom over extremism,” Clark said in a statement.

Across the Capitol: Sen. Katie Britt (R-Ala.) hosted a fundraiser for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in Birmingham, Ala., on Friday that raised more than $250,000.

Britt is a freshman and is viewed as a rising star in the GOP. First elected in 2022, Britt was quickly added to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s leadership team and won a spot on the coveted Appropriations Committee. She was also chosen to deliver the GOP response to the State of the Union earlier this year.

So far this cycle, Britt has raised the eighth most of any Republican senator for the NRSC, while her personal campaign account has nearly $3 million on hand.

Cruz is running against Rep. Colin Allred (D-Texas) as he seeks a third term in the Senate.
