Eagleton’s next Ready to Run campaign program is fast coming up on March 20th. A program for women of color is being held as a pre-conference on March 19th.
All programs are on the Douglas Campus at Rutgers University in New Brunswick. Donna Brazile is one of the featured speakers this year.
NJ has always been a laggard when it comes to electing women to office. We’ve made strides recently with Speaker Oliver taking the helm in the Assembly but we have a long way to to go.
This Eagleton program is a great step in making the jump to officeholder and could be followed up with hands-on training at a place like Camp Wellstone.
In Minnesota we began winning the suburbs with a great group of women who are nurses, small business owners, college professors and attorneys. When Senator Klobuchar won election in 2006 she did it while suburban women were winning legislative races across Minnesota’s “purple donut”. In fact Senator Klobuchar continues to be among the all-time top vote performers in Minneapolis’s western suburbs (think of a cross between NJ-07 and NJ-12)
Who out there is NJ’s Amy Klobuchar?
