GOP gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna is asking supporters today to vote for their favorite new campaign button design. "The button with the most shares by the end of today will become our next official campaign team button!" the McKenna campaign Facebook page says. And here's one of them:
Chicks for Rob! As the page makes clear, McKenna's campaign isn't appealing to infant Republican chickens, they're trying to rally the lady vote.
“Washington State has a long history of empowering its female leaders," the campaign says in explaining the woman-empowering button design. "They are our business executives, our philanthropists, our software engineers, and our elected officials. Undoubtedly, women will play a key role in implementing my New Direction for Washington State plan."
Currently it has only one share. I can't imagine why more of "our business executives, our philanthropists, our software engineers, and our elected officials" don't want to be a Chick for Rob. Because, as the campaign points out, women across the state are standing with Rob and they even have an online coop just for him. Vote for Chicks for Rob here.
This is second only to the McKenna campaign's excellent outreach to elderly and Asian American voters.
