Richards on Kaine Pick: ‘This Is the Strongest Reproductive Rights Ticket We’ve Ever Had’

‘The platform is stronger than it’s ever been and it’s wonderful to think that Secretary Clinton is going to have a good running mate’

RICHARDS: "Very enthusiastic. He’s been a great senator. He has had a 100 percent voting record in the United States Senate and as you know, we’ve had a lot of tough issues, both around Planned Parenthood and attacks on access to safe and legal abortion and he’s been not only a solid vote but really an ally. And I think — look, this is the strongest reproductive rights ticket we’ve ever had. The platform is stronger than it’s ever been and it’s wonderful to think that Secretary Clinton is going to have a good running mate and strong ally because she is so far ahead on women’s rights and women’s reproductive access."
