High-Profile Democrats Speak on Women's Issues
Shortly before Mitt Romney spoke at Shady Brook Farm, Sandra Fluke and several other key Democrats held a press conference.
Just a few miles away from where thousands of people gathered to see Mitt Romney speak, key Democrats held a press conference reiterating their stance on women’s issues at a hotel in the Langhorne section of Middletown.
Kathy Boockvar, congressional candidate for the 8th district, spoke first and began by noting the Democrats and Republicans have “stark differences” for the nation. The candidate also said Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are “far from the center.”
Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, former Congressman Patrick Murphy, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards and Sandra Fluke all spoke at the press event.
Fluke came to prominence in early 2012 when she spoke to congressional democrats on contraception mandates. She is a native of Pennsylvania.
