Read what they are saying below:
- Philadelphia Inquirer, ‘Women are the reason we can win,’ John Fetterman says at packed abortion-rights rally in Montco: For Democrats like Fetterman running in tight races just months after the Supreme Court overturned the constitutional right to an abortion, the issue could be a difference-maker, particularly in motivating voters in areas like the Philadelphia suburbs, where Democratic turnout has swelled in recent years and support for abortion access is high.
- Insider, John Fetterman addresses thousands outside Philadelphia, promises to be ’51st vote’ for abortion rights: It was a risky play, pitting a midterm election rally against the opening day of Philadelphia Eagles football. But the bet was that voters in this blue-leaning suburb would care more about abortion rights than Jalen Hurts’ ability to hit receivers downfield…In all, more than 3,000 people attended.
- USA Today, At rally for Dem Senate candidate in Pennsylvania – and beyond – abortion takes center stage: Dr. Mark Lopatin said he is more motivated to vote in November than in years past. A registered Republican in suburban Philadelphia, he has voted for both major parties. Thisyear he’s voting for Democratic candidates who support abortion rights. “It’s a medical issue,” he said. “The physician-patient relationship is the most sacred thing in healthcare, and it’s being destroyed.”
- Fox 29, Democratic Senate candidate Lt. Gov. John Fetterman holds Montgomery County rally: Women’s rights and abortion rights were top of mind for voters who turned out Sunday, many waiting in a line wrapped around Montgomery County Community College, in the rain. John Fetterman supporter, Susan Wendt, stated, “We are concerned about our democracy.”
