Democrats Invest Millions Targeting Abortion Laws In Republican States Ahead Of Election

 As the 2024 election nears, the Democratic National Committee is doubling down on its effort to make abortion laws in Republican-led states a top issue for voters.

In addition to investing $8.3 million across every state party in the country for 2024, the DNC is also committing to handing out grants of more than $1 million to battleground states to hone their messaging on abortion, CBS News reported, citing a party memo that was circulated on Monday, the second anniversary of the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

“As we mark the second anniversary of Dobbs, our work to mobilize voters continues today and lasts through November,” DNC Communications Director Rosemary Boeglin wrote in the memo. “The only way to restore and expand women’s reproductive freedoms is reelecting President Biden and Vice President Harris, and electing Democrats up and down the ballot.”

Democrats are “building infrastructure in red states to fight back against these bans,” according to the memo. That infrastructure will include the “Red State Fund,” which focuses on putting Democrats on the offensive in Republican-leaning states and seeks to provide voters with pro-abortion resources. The DNC put $4.5 million into the “Red State Fund” for 2023-2024, according to CBS News.

The DNC memo also called out presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, claiming that he supports a national abortion ban. Trump, however, said in April that he would not sign a national abortion ban if he’s elected to a second term in the White House. The former president also criticized Arizona’s near-total abortion ban and questioned Florida’s six-week abortion limitations.

Democrats have repeatedly sought to shift voters’ focus to abortion ahead of the 2024 election as President Biden continues to struggle in the polls and recently dipped to all-time low approval ratings. Since the overturning of Roe in June of 2022, the pro-abortion side has won every abortion-related ballot measure, even in red states.

With Biden trailing Trump in the polls in the vital battleground states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania, Democrats are doubling down on abortion messaging. On Monday, the president slammed Trump and conservatives, saying they support “extremism” on the abortion issue.

“Send me back to the White House and I’ll fight like hell to restore Roe v. Wade and protect American freedom,” Biden said in a 45-second video clip.


While Democrats continue to focus on abortion less than five months out from the election, voters have consistently ranked the economy, inflation, and immigration as the top issues facing the country. According to a CBS News/YouGov poll from April, voters in battleground states also ranked the economy as the top issue heading into the election, with the majority of those polled saying the economy is in “fairly bad” or “very bad” shape.
