TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The abortion rights group EMILY's List has endorsed Democrat Margie Wakefield in race in the 2nd Congressional District of Kansas.

The Washington-based group raises money for female Democrats supporting abortion rights. Wakefield is a Lawrence attorney who hopes to unseat Republican incumbent Lynn Jenkins.

In a statement, EMILY's List described Jenkins as a tea party lawmaker.

Jenkins was seen as a GOP moderate during her six years as state treasurer, but since winning her House seat in 2008, she's compiled a solid anti-abortion voting record, according to the National Right to Life Committee.

Jenkins spokesman Bill Roe described EMILY's List as one of the most partisan, Democratic groups in the nation and said its endorsement of Wakefield speaks for itself.
