Reuters: This election, abortion rights activists are looking for just a few good women, by Patricia Zengerle:
This fall, there is going to be a relatively small group of women voters who may be very, very sick of hearing from NARAL Pro-Choice America by Election Day on Nov. 6.
Like most of those involved in politics this election year, the abortion rights advocacy group says that women will determine the outcome of the contest on Nov. 6 between Democratic President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney.
But unlike most, the group has identified, by name and address, the thousands of women across the country that it thinks might make the difference – and it plans to go after their votes, and in a big way, but in small numbers – in many cases as few as 1,000 or 2,000 in an individual county. . . .
