Essential Estrogen: PURSE PAC aims to be inclusive, grow Republican Party

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Ed Tibbetts of the Quad-City Times has a report on how the PURSE PAC,
a women's political fundraising organization founded in the fall of
2008, hopes to draw more women to the Republican Party of Iowa. "Some
of the group's leaders met with Quad-City-area Republicans Monday at a
reception hosted at former state Sen. Maggie Tinsman's home. 'We are
of the belief it's going to take a lot of people doing a lot of
different things to change the results for Republicans in Iowa,' said
Diane Crookham-Johnson, chairwoman of the new group..." The group plans
to seek out Republican women to work on and donate to political
campaigns and to run for office themselves. The idea is to focus on
common interests, such as limited government and lower taxes and not
on social issues such as abortion and gay marriage. There are other
groups that do that, leaders say.
