Tomorrow should be a good day for Yvette Clarke. She’s hosting a town hall meeting and getting endorsed by Rep. John Murtha, the hawkish Democratic congressman from Pennsylvania who is now calling for troops to be withdrawn from Iraq. (Anthony Weiner, who already endorsed her, will also be there.)
While all four Democrats in the Brooklyn 11th congressional race have taken similar anti-war positions, Clarke has a unique argument:
“Imagine a Congress that was half female, allowing our children to be sent to war, in harms way without an extremely good reason.”
Anybody know how many women in Congress voted for the war?
Update: Town Hall info after the jump.
