Planned Parenthood on Thursday announced the launch of a $20 million electoral campaign that will mostly target Senate and gubernatorial races in eight states.

It's the most money Planned Parenthood's political arm has dedicated to midterms ever, the organization said.

The main states in the crosshairs of the pro-abortion lobby as part of its "March. Vote. Win." movement:

  • Arizona.
  • Florida.
  • Michigan.
  • Minnesota.
  • Nevada.
  • Ohio.
  • Pennsylvania.
  • Wisconsin.

"Today we have a clear message for politicians who are undermining our freedoms and making it harder to get healthcare: We're voting you out in 2018," Planned Parenthood Votes Executive Director Deirdre Schifeling said in a statement.

"The Trump-Pence administration is responsible for an unprecedented assault on Planned Parenthood patients and our communities, aided by politicians at state and federal levels who have supported dangerous policies meant to strip us of our rights and our ability to access health care," Schifeling said.

"In response, we've marched, we've mobilized, we've organized, and together we've built a historic resistance. Now, our electoral program is going to channel that energy and the activism into electoral victories across the country in 2018," Schifeling wrote.

Planned Parenthood said it plans to invest in other states and down ballot races, as well.
