Democratic candidates running for office and other liberals immediately began using the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision that overturned Roe v. Wade to raise funds Friday.
Democrat Attorney General John Shapiro of Pennsylvania, who is running to replace Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf, posted a fundraising request on Twitter at 10:20 AM Friday, nine minutes after SCOTUSBlog tweeted news of the decision.
“This is a devastating day in America,” Shapiro said. “A woman’s right to choose now depends on the state in which she lives, and the decision will be made by our next Governor.”

“Maintaining our Senate majority + flipping PA blue has never been more important,” Democratic Lt. Gov. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania posted within an hour of the ruling. Fetterman is running to replace retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey.
Democratic Attorney General Dana Nessel of Michigan and Democratic Senate candidate Pat Chesboro also posted fundraising solicitations on Twitter by noon on Friday.
We can & will fight this dangerous ruling with everything we’ve got, but we need your support. If you want Michigan to have an AG who will protect reproductive freedom, donate today. https://t.co/GWrM23qxUT

“Join No Dem Left Behind,” former Democratic state senator Richard Ojeda of West Virginia tweeted.
