President Obama says it all the time: elections are about choices.
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz echoed that message last night when she spoke to a packed house of volunteers at our Asheville field office. After speaking, the chairwoman joined our volunteers for a phone bank, reaching out to women across the state.
The Chairwoman said that the choice for North Carolina women this November couldn't be more important:
“The election is a choice between a candidate who’s on the right side of the issues – and one who’s not. With President Obama, we see his commitment to America’s women every single day. Mitt Romney wants to turn back the clock on all that we’ve achieved and take women backward.”
That message resonated with many other women in attendance:
“I fear for if Mitt Romney were to take office. We’d go back in time and it would be a very frightening scenario. Everything that so many of our presidents have fought for in terms of women’s rights would be negated.”—Letty H.
Last night’s phone bank was an opportunity to make sure other women in North Carolina know what’s at stake in this election—and why everyone needs to get involved. As Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz said, reelecting President Obama is the only way to keep this country moving forward, and it can only happen if everyone is involved:
“It’s up to us to make sure our friends, families, neighbors and co-workers understand exactly what’s at stake. It’s up to all of us to make a clear case for sending President Obama back to the White House. From now until November 6th, it’s our job to make sure women voters know how far we’ve come—and how reelecting this President is the only way to keep moving our nation forward.”
