There is only one candidate in our state’s critical Senate race who has consistently stood up for the economic and health care priorities of women and families: Governor Tim Kaine.
Tim Kaine supports equal pay for equal work and will work to close a persistent wage gap that still affects women in Virginia. George Allen refused to support the Paycheck Fairness Act or Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act that would help families struggling in this difficult economy. Tim Kaine spoke out against intrusive, offensive and unnecessary ultrasounds for women. George Allen remained silent.
Instead of standing up for women and families and being straight with voters about his extreme positions, George Allen has consistently said these issues aren’t relevant today. For women in Virginia, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
