Women’s Strike Force ready to inject itself into Virginia elections
The Women’s Strike Force kicks off their candidate interviewing process this week to identify and assist candidates who support women’s reproductive rights. These are candidates who oppose the extreme policies of the Republican ticket announced at the GOP convention.
The Women’s Strike Force, a Virginia political action committee (PAC) dedicated to recruiting and supporting candidates opposing those elected officials who supported the mandatory ultrasound legislation in the Virginia General Assembly, is active and insistent that women should make their own personal decisions without the intrusive government intervention that characterizes the McDonnell-Cuccinelli administration and the newly named reactionary team that wants to continue their policies.
Virginia Republicans chose a radical ticket on Saturday with the nomination of Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II for governor, E.W. Jackson for lieutenant governor, and state Senator Mark Obenshain for attorney general. The reactionary trio represents Republican legislator’s continuing war on women and incessant intrusion into women’s reproductive healthcare decisions.
“There were no surprises in the Republican nominees.” said Katherine Waddell, president of the (PAC). “Their choices make it very clear that they will continue pursuing an extreme right-wing anti-woman anti-choice agenda. The Women’s Strike Force is committed to electing candidates who support women’s reproductive rights.” said Katherine Waddell, president of the political action committee (PAC).
The Women’s Strike Force is a Virginia PAC dedicated to recruiting and supporting all candidates – without regard to party affiliation and gender – opposing those elected official who supported the mandatory ultrasound legislation in the Virginia General Assembly. This bi-partisan group works to support and elect candidates who will bring respect for women back to an arena of civil discourse and put a stop to the legislative attacks on women.
