Personal PAC’s Terry Cosgrove was interviewed this week by the Windy City Times. Read it if you want his take on some legislative races, but I thought the end was the most interesting part:
We do four significant things for candidates. The first involves calling every female in a district and asking if theyâ€™re in favor of keeping the law on abortion the way it is or if theyâ€™re in favor of changing it. That way, we identify whoâ€™s pro-choice and who isnâ€™t. If they want to keep it the way it is, then the person is pro-choice and we tell them [how the candidates stand on abortion.] We amass thousands of pro-choice voters in each district this way.
They call every female in the districts. That’s a big reason why Personal PAC has been so effective over the years. They really work it and they are super-organized.
And, yes, that’s “Hanoi Jane” in the photo.
