“Votes Have Consequences” Announces Its Targets

Several months back, former Rep. Marilyn Musgrave teamed up with the Susan B. Anthony List for an effort called “Votes Have Consequences” that is going to seek to knock off candidate that do not share their anti-choice views:

We’re going into districts where individuals are vulnerable and we’re just going to make sure people know how these individuals have voted and what their record is.”

We’re going to be assertive. We’re going to be aggressive and this is a new day in politics for the pro-life movement.

Today, the group announced its list of targets:

The Votes Have Consequences project will target the constituencies of the following legislators: Michael Bennett (CO-Senate), Blanche Lincoln (AR-Senate), Harry Reid (NV-Senate), Alan Grayson (FL-08), Debbie Halvorson (IL-11), Frank Kratovil (MD-01), Suzanne Kosmas (FL-24), Walt Minnick (ID-01), Glenn Nye (VA-02), Tom Perriello (VA-05), Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01), and Harry Teague (NM-02).

“We’re going to be assertive, strategic and focused in our efforts to elevate the cause of Life at the grassroots level, where it matters,” said former Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, Project Director for Votes Have Consequences. “It is vital that Americans make their voices heard. Without action, taxpayers will be forced to foot the bill for abortion on-demand in the largest expansion of government-backed abortion since Roe v. Wade. The stakes are high. That is why it’s so important for pro-life advocates to go on the offensive.”

With a budget of $2 million, Votes Have Consequences will educate voters in targeted districts through television, radio, telephone townhall meetings, local grassroots activity, automated phone calls, online advocacy campaigns and earned media coverage in both traditional and new media outlets.
