Emily’s List, a group that works to elect pro-choice women to state and federal government, has sent out an e-mail to its members asking them to support Democrat Margaret Anderson Kelliher’s campaign for governor. The group, which helps raise money for female candidates, has already endorsed Kelliher but the e-mail blast is an attempt to help Kelliher win the DFL endorsement on Saturday.
The group also released a video from Emily’s List president Stephanie Schriock, who was the campaign manager for Democrat Al Franken’s 2008 Senate campaign:
Last election cycle, I spent a fair amount of time in the great state of Minnesota working right along side you to defeat Republican Norm Coleman and take back our seat in the U.S. Senate. It was a long fight and it was a tough fight – and standing together, we won.
In my time here, I had the opportunity to meet many of Minnesota’s incredible DFL activists and elected officials from all over the state and I still call many friends. Always hardworking and committed to change, DFLers made victory in 2008 possible.
But one leader stood out: Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher.
