Personhood Opponents Give Earle Banks A+

October 26, 2012

We had not intended on spending much time on Supreme Court races this year.  But this caught our eyes because of the interesting campaign strategy.

Personhood Opponents created a lot of political capital last year when they defeated the Personhood Amendment.  Now they appear to be investing that capital in Representative Earle Banks (D-Jackson) who is challenging incumbent Chief Justice William Waller, Jr. in District 1.  Their video supporting Banks and attacking Waller says of Banks: “On issues involving women’s choice and women’s rights I give him this grade” A+.

Are the Personhood opponents right to invest their political capital in Earle Banks as the model candidate for women’s rights? Or is it gambling away their political power? What say ye, ladies?
