Kimberly Ellis Has a Message For You

Today, many Democrats face a difficult quandary in our red and purple districts: back an anti-choice Democrat, alienate women and ditch our core values, or leave the field to the Republicans. It's time we create another option. It's time we build the bench.

We, as a Party, are solely responsible for this quagmire. It's time for us to stop pointing fingers at each other, and instead look in the mirror and ask, "What have we personally done to help build the bench of pro-choice candidates in local office?" If the answer is "don't know, can't remember, or nothing"; well, let's stop talking about it - let's be about it.

I'm running to be the Chair of the California Democratic Party. You have a right to know where I stand on this issue. So let me be crystal clear: if a candidate doesn't support a woman's right to choose, they shouldn't expect to be supported. Period.

My seven-step plan addresses how we are going to solve this gap in qualified, pro-choice local candidates here in California's red and purple districts. No, it won't happen overnight - it will take time.

But I can assure you, if there isn't a pipeline of pro-choice candidates in these opposition-held Californian districts in the future, you can point that finger in my direction because, the buck stops here.

Democratically yours,
