Planned Parenthood’s New Jersey Action Committee endorsed the Jon Corzine/Loretta Weinberg ticket today, calling the two “passionate advocates for women’s rights.”
The group praised the Democrats for supporting abortion rights, ensuring access to birth control drugs and emergency contraception and advocating comprehensive sex education.
Republican gubernatorial nominee Chris Christie is pro-life, though his selection of pro-choice lieutenant governor candidate Kim Guadagno kept the state’s largest pro-life group, New Jersey Right to Life, from endorsing him.
Planned Parenthood brought up Christie’s endorsements by what it called “anti-choice extremists,” including the state’s most visible opponent of abortion, U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (R-Hamilton).
Independent gubernatorial candidate Christopher Daggett is pro-choice.
The upcoming election is not expected to turn on abortion. Just one percent of respondents to a recent Monmouth University poll named it as one of the two top issues they want to hear the candidates for governor talk about.
When asked in New Hamsphire today about whether he was considering a presidential run in 2016, Gov. Chris Christie said he wouldn’t discuss his plans until after November.Read More >
