NARAL President Suggests Women Don’t Think The Democratic Party Has Their Back

NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue seemed to suggest that women in America don’t think the Democratic Party has their back because of the controversy over whether the Democratic Party will support pro-life candidates in 2018.

The Democratic Party is in open civil war about whether to support pro-life Democrats in 2018 with some party leaders saying that being pro-choice is a litmus test for being part of the Democratic Party and others saying it’s not.

“I think there is no doubt we have a number dynamics at play right here,” Hogue said during an interview on “Pod Save America” about the controversy.

Hogue cited an article by the Washington Post’s David Weigel, who said that Democrats have a media problem when it comes to this issue.

“So there’s no doubt that putting a little more thought [into] how these answers come out of the months of Democratic leaders right now would go a very, very long way,” Hogue said. “I think the fact that they haven’t actually invested the time to think about how to answer these questions strategically and do some basic media training…that’s something to pay attention to.”

Hogue noted that at the moment, the Democratic Party is actively engaged on women’s issues, and they need women to win in 2018.

“The Democrats need these women to win, and these women need to know the Democrats have their back,” Hogue concluded.
