Our Endorsement of Tim Kaine for Senate

Virginia NOW Announces NOW/PAC’s Endorsement of Timothy Kaine for U.S. Senate

Statement of Virginia NOW President Diana Egozcue and Legislative
Vice-President Marjorie Signer.

The Virginia chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) is proud
to announce NOW/PAC’s endorsement of former governor Timothy Kaine for
U.S. Senate from Virginia.

Former Gov. Kaine has been a champion of equal rights and
opportunities throughout his career.

On reproductive rights, he states:” I strongly support the right of women to make their own
health and reproductive decisions and, for that reason, will oppose efforts to weaken or subvert the basic holding of Roe v. Wade.” He opposes proposed federal “personhood” legislation as “a damaging policy, which could ultimately overturn Roe v. Wade and ban access to
some forms of FDA-approved birth control.”

On other issues that are crucial to women’s lives – equal pay, health care, violence against
women, educational excellence, civil rights and LGBT rights  – we can count on Kaine to protect and advance women’s well-being and rights.

In the bitter partisanship of Congress, Kaine will be a voice of reason, common sense and respect. We look forward to working with him for a better future for women and families in Virginia and across the country.
