WomenCount PAC

May 29, 2008


Dear supporters of WomenCount PAC,

The moment is now upon us, upon you. Perhaps the most important moment of this campaign. In just a few days voting will be finished – cast and counted. That’s what we’ve been fighting for – together – with so much passion and dignity in recent days.

But our work is not complete. Now, we must make sure our voices are truly heard. That means persuading superdelegates that Hillary Clinton is the right choice, the only choice, for so many reasons:

1. She will be ahead in the popular vote.
2. She will have won all of the big states and swing states that Democrats must win in November.
3. She will have won states representing at least 308 electoral votes, far ahead of the 270 necessary to become president.
4. She is polling ahead of Obama against McCain in critical states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida.

And those are just the facts. We must also remind the superdelegates why we are supporting Hillary – that she carries our hopes and dreams for a better tomorrow for ourselves and for our children. That she speaks for us and will do the hard work when it comes to civil rights and human rights, health care and education, our safety and our planet. We must remind the superdelegates WHY more voters cast their ballots for her than any other candidate.

Hillary has shown unparalleled resilience, courage and strength in this campaign. Now, we must empower the superdelegates with similar courage to stand up for what is right, to stand up for us, to stand up for Hillary. Our country deserves nothing less.

WomenCount PAC, armed with the attention that we’ve received through our recent advertising campaigns, will launch a new ad campaign beginning IMMEDIATELY after voting ends that is targeted to superdelegates. But we need your help to raise the money to run these ads.

THIS IS IT! OUR MOMENT IS NOW! Help us show the passion and the sheer force of will of Hillary’s supporters by getting this message out as far and wide as possible next week. But we need the money now to make it happen.

Together, we will prevail.

With gratitude,

The WomenCount PAC Team

P.S. We’re also excited to tell you that we just made our first round of campaign contributions to six fabulous women: Reps. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Sheila Jackson Lee (TX), Stephanie Tubbs Jones (OH), Diane Watson (CA); as well as Tracey Brooks, an open seat candidate in New York, and Dina Titus, who is challenging a Republican incumbent in Nevada.


WomenCount PAC was created to ensure that the 51 percent of American citizens who are women  have their values and votes counted in the political process. So far in the 2008 election cycle, WomenCount has run a series of ads related to the presidential campaign and made contributions to several women candidates for Congress.
