Planned Parenthood was here to issue an endorsement of Cory Booker for U.S. Senate, but had nothing planned for Democratic gubernatorial candidate, state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18), who’s running against a pro-life Republican incumbent.
However, the group’s political director said the organization plans to help Buono.
“We’re going to help her raise money and do a social media drive to get out the vote,” Amy Taylor, Planned Parenthod’s national political director, told PolitickerNJ.com.
Richards (pictured) issued her enthusiastic support of Booker at Rutgers University earlier today.
“Electing a champion of women’s healthcare has never been more important,” she said. “Cory Booker has an opponent who would take women back more than 40 years.”
