NARAL Refuses to Endorse a Candidate for Gov. in Va.
The Republican candidate for Virginia governor would ban abortion and also ban contraceptives. The Democrat says he's pro-life; the Democrat also says he's pro-choice. (Catholic, natch.) So NARAL says "we're outta here!" The Republican will win, mainly because he knows what he thinks. The Democrat will lose because he wants to be Republican on this issue. Then perhaps John Roberts will make it possible for the new Republican governor of Virginia to ban abortion out-right. (Banning contraceptives probably won't play that well with white Republican men of a certain income, but we could be wrong.)
