The Minnesota Women’s Political Caucus announced that it’s backing Democrat Susan Gaertner’s bid for governor. Here’s the release from Gaertner’s campaign:
- (St. Paul, MN) DFL Governor candidate Susan Gaerter was delighted to receive the endorsement of the Minnesota Women’s Political Caucus (MWPC) Saturday night in St. Paul.
- “I am very honored to receive the endorsement of a great grass roots organization of home-grown Minnesotans,” Gaertner said. “They have done a lot for giving women a voice.”
- The endorsement came at the group’s annual meeting and was based on a vote of the statewide, multi-partisan membership of the MWPC. The group also endorsed candidates for other Minnesota races at the same meeting.
- The MWPC was founded in 1972 and has been endorsing candidates for over 30 years. MWPC lobbies on issues of concern to women at the legislature and provides a variety of programs for women involved or interested in becoming involved in politics. This has been done by targeting, endorsing, contributing funds and volunteers and working to publicize women’s campaigns.
