In an interview last night on MSNBC’s American Voices with Alicia Menendez, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison vowed that reproductive rights will be on the ballot and explained how Republicans overplayed their hand with an issue even they know will hurt them.
DNC Chair: “Well, we are going to hit the road and we’re talking about this issue. I’m going to California tomorrow with President Biden to campaign with Governor Newsom and I can guarantee you we will be talking about a woman’s right to choose, to control their own bodies. And Alicia, pay attention to this. Go on Ronna McDaniel’s Twitter page, go on the RNC’s website. For an issue they have said it’s so important to them, they have been as quiet as some church mice. And it’s because they know that they have stepped in it. They know that this is an issue that women across the board, across demographics, are not very happy about. And so you know, Republicans have overplayed their hands. And we are going to make sure that we remind the American people. It’s people like Larry Elder. It’s people like Glenn Youngkin in Virginia who are extreme in terms of their views on choice and women’s rights to control their healthcare. And we’re going to remind them of that and that’s going to be a big issue as we move forward.”
