Democrats Trying To Gain Grounds In California’s Conservative Districts Stay Quiet Over Abortion Rights
The topic is back in the spotlight with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, but the candidates running to flip California House seats are avoiding it.
San Francisco Chronicle:
California Dems Trying To Flip The House Aren’t Running On Abortion Rights
Democratic Party leaders and progressive groups portray Judge Brett Kavanaugh as a threat to abortion rights, and they hope the fight over President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee will energize voters in California races that could decide who controls the House next year. ... Democrats running in the more conservative House districts that the party is trying to seize from Republicans aren’t rushing to make abortion their issue. (Garofoli, 7/15)
