The group says it's targeting women who are more interested in the goings-on in their own world than the political one. "We are playing in Iowa as a pro-Hillary group, Emily's List spokeswoman Maren Hesla told Politico. That is what our focus is on here. The pro-abortion group and the Clinton campaign will both work over the course of the next few weeks to incorporate new voters into Iowa's caucus system, which saw 125,000 Iowans participate in 2004.
The group intended to weigh in on Super Tuesday -- the name for the slew of contests on February 5 in various primary states -- but the closeness of the Democratic campaign in Iowa and the compact primary schedule forced it to shift its attention to the Midwestern state. Next month, the Clinton campaign hopes to visit more than 50,000 supporters or potential supporters to train them on the caucus and encourage them to attend and motivate others.
At the same time, Emily's List will start a round of phone calls and mailings on Clinton's behalf to target 125,000 women and double up on efforts the campaign organized. "It will be substantial and you won't be able to escape it," Helsa previously said of the group's efforts. Emily's List has chosen to endorse Clinton even though she faces two strongly pro-abortion candidates in John Edwards and Barack Obama in the Democratic Party. The group only endorses women, which partly explains their endorsement of the New York senator.
Could have picked John Edwards.
“The group only endorses women, which partly explains their endorsement of the New York senator.”
Very fitting since Her Thighness is only partly a woman.
Abortion groups have got to be happy this year. They’ve got Hillary and Obama and Edwards squarely in their pocket, and if they lose, all the Republicans are being told by Pat Robertson, the fomer Christian educator, to vote for Rudy. It’s a great year for killing babies, all right.
Hmmm... I wonder who they would endosre if the only female candidate running was pro-life? I guess no one. These sound like some staunch feminazis. Abortion is a sacrament to them.
I always see Clinton when I put in the keyword “turkey”.
Death Beasts for Hillary!
