(WBUR has Winslow behind Sullivan by a better than 3-1 margin. In third place… – promoted by Paul R. Ferro)
I received this email today from the Coalition for Marriage & Family. To put everything into its full and proper context, the original WCVB story can be read, with the video clip featuring the quote below, and others, from Dan Winslow at http://www.wcvb.com/news/polit…
“Pro-Life Candidates Deserve to Lose” says Republican Candidate Rep. Dan Winslow
Senate candidate will also speak at Anti-DOMA rally today
Last week in an interview with WCVB reporter Janet Wu, Republican US Senate candidate Dan Winslow spouted that the Republican Party “deserved to lose,” if it chose a pro-life candidate. He was specifically attacking pro-life front runner Michael Sullivan, who had been endorsed by the Massachusetts Citizens for Life’s federal PAC. Winslow argues pro-lifers Republicans shouldn’t run for statewide office.
We think Winslow should apologize to all the pro-lifers who have worked hard for less-than-ideal Republican candidates, in the hopes of gaining some ground and saving some lives. We think he should apologize to all his pro-life colleagues in the legislature, for basically stating that the excellent farm team they’re building should be barred from future higher office. From pro-life legislators standing up against MariaTalks to pro-life municipal officials fighting the Transgender Bill that Winslow voted for, there’s a growing grassroots pro-family movement Winslow should seek to ally himself with on fiscal issues, rather than attacking.
Today, Winslow will speak at an Anti-DOMA rally at City Hall plaza with individuals like Rep. Carl Sciortino (lead sponsor of the Bathroom Bill) and other far-left legislators.
Pro-abortion Republicans often accuse social conservatives with “being divisive” and insist that they not talk about social issues. Winslow is himself engaging in the politics of division, splitting the Republican Party by attacking one of its core constituencies needlessly. Winslow’s message is not to focus on the economy and ignore the social issues and find common ground, but to attack the base in the hope that liberals will be drawn into the Republican primary.
We want to take this moment to educate pro-family voters that he’s not only attacked pro-lifers, but he was the only Republican to vote in favor of the Transgender Bill, and the only one endorsed by radical transgender groups:
Winslow is attacking his fellow candidates from a position of desperation. He trails in recent polls by double digits, and has the lowest name identification of any candidate in the Senate race, according to a recent WBUR poll: http://www.wbur.org/2013/03/26…
If you’d like to send a message, telling Dan Winslow you’re shocked he even calls himself a Republican and ask that he apologize to you and his colleagues, you can click HERE.
Or, if you’d rather do something positive and affirming in response to Winslow’s negativity, take a moment to donate to the Coalition today, so we can continue to educate pro-family voters about radical Republicans like Dan Winslow:
Please note that I did slightly edit the original posting. I added the link to “you can click HERE” so that anyone interested can access & read the pre-written text that could be sent to Rep. Winslow. I also removed the fundraising URL at the very bottom of the email.
NOTA BENE – to be sensitive to the assertions that the title, lifted directly from quoted email sent by the Coalition for Marriage & Family, is misleading I changed the title of this post. After all, I disagree with Dan Winslow but I’m not above trying to be fair about the portrayal of the profound differences.
