Stacy Rogge-Senterfeit, Co-Chair of Women for Tester, this week shined a light on another out-of-state shadow group called “Concerned Women for America,” which is spending another $200,000 on TV ads attacking Tester’s record of tax cuts for middle class families, responsible decisions and common sense spending cuts. The group does not reveal its donors.
“The Concerned Women for America,” as your women friends will surely tell you, is only the most important women’s policy group in America (after Curves of course).
But for those not yet familiar with the highly credible organization, according to the watchdog group Right Wing Watch, the Concerned Women for America are, rightly, concerned that health care reform violates each and every single one of the Ten Commandments, that gays are discriminatory bullies who hate American democracy, that climate change science is a conspiracy against poor people, and that President Obama wants communists to control America’s children.
Anyway, here’s a PDF fact check for the Concerned Women for America ad.
How cool is this? Big Sandy farmer Jon Tester is continuing to build more momentum in his bid for a second term in the U.S. Senate, thanks to this week’s launch of Women for Tester, another grassroots organization supporting his campaign.
Anyone is welcome to join Women for Tester online here . The organization is also on Facebook here.
The group was started by Stacy Rogge-Senterfeit, who works for the Clark Fork Coalition in Missoula, and Barb Skelton, a rancher and business consultant who was the first woman to be nominated for Lieutenant Governor in Montana. Great idea ladies!
In a press release, Stacy said:
“One thing is clear about Dennis Rehberg: He can’t be trusted to stand up for Montana women and our families, Congressman Rehberg voted against equal pay protections for women, and enthusiastically supported the effort to take away access to preventive care — including breast cancer screenings — by defunding Planned Parenthood.”
I could not agree more.
Women for Tester is the second grassroots organization supporting Tester’s hard work and Montana values in the U.S. Senate. Students for Tester, which launched earlier this month, is on Facebook here.
