    Because the voter universe for this election is overwhelmingly female so if Markey isn't closing the deal with women, that worries me greatly.

    The campaign is launching Women for Markey in a few days (April 4 kickoff) so clearly that can't get rolled out fast enough.

    Lynch's positions on women's rights are appalling from the perspective of your average Democratic female voter in Mass. That he's skating on this issue is a failure so far.

    Hopefully we can turn this around in the next 30 days. Lots of work to do. So let's take this information and get to work.

      I consider myself somewhat active and haven't heard anything about this.

      OK and I said I don't want to trash the campaign - it might be my own fault, but please is there a link or contact? Is this part of the campaign or an independent initiative?

      Women are 51% of the population yet are represented in congress by barely 17%! Until our representation reflects the population, we risk sliding backwards .....

        Not quite sure how they're publicizing, altho I just checked the campaign website events list and it's not on there. :: le sigh::

        Here's the info -- pass it on :-)

      There's time but this info needs to get out there. I thought he did OK last night but could have been more clear that Lynch was taking a right-wing anti-choice position only three years ago. To the uninitiated it sounds like they both flip-flopped, even though Markey changed his position more than 30 years ago and Lynch "changed" his last week.

      Phony bastard.
