Washington, DC -- Today, Donald Trump sunk to a new low, insisting that he could not have sexually assaulted two women because they were not attractive enough -- an offensive, dangerous assertion.


Watch here

Statement from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

“This is abhorrent. This is sickening. It’s no longer a question of whether or not Trump will become president of this country --- it’s a question of how much damage he will do between now and November 8.

“Donald Trump has turned this election into a referendum on how we treat women in this country. Women are fired up, and turning out in force to make sure Trump stays out of the White House. This weekend tens of thousands of our volunteers will be knocking on doors, making phone calls doing all they can to make sure this man does not become president.”

On October 16, 2016, Planned Parenthood turns 100. To commemorate this Centennial, Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations will host over 90 electoral events across 20 states, kicking off their largest Get Out The Vote effort ever. This comes on the heels of their largest electoral program ever --- a $30 million effort to reach 3 million voters, mainly swing women and millennials, in six target states, with 800 paid staff, and at least 3500 volunteers. The effort, being run by Planned Parenthood Votes, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and other Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations, is aimed at electing Hillary Clinton president, and flipping the Senate -- as well as electing advocates for reproductive rights up and down the ballot.


Background: Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Votes Running Largest Electoral Program Ever

NYT: “$30 Million Effort to Target Millennial Voters

“The goal is to target millennial voters, and the organization has knocked on a million doors in Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Those are crucial battlegrounds in the presidential campaign, but also states with competitive Senate races.”

Rolling Stone: ”Ground War to Stop Trump-Pence

“Army of hundreds of paid staff and thousands of volunteers could tip the balance in as many as half-a-dozen swing states, where the Trump campaign barely counts field offices, much less a sophisticated ground game.

Refinery 29: “Biggest Campaign Blitz, EVER

“In Wisconsin, Ohio, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire, volunteers and organizers are going door-to-door to talk to voters about the importance of reproductive rights in the 2016 election.”

Salon: “Clinton’s hopes rest on turnout

“Thirty percent of the people it has contacted are undecided and they frequently lean more towards Clinton after speaking with a canvasser.”

USA Today: “Unleashes big election ground force in six states

“The group has 800 paid staffers and another 3,500 volunteers on the ground, with the goal of talking to 2 million voters through door-to-door canvassing… one of the biggest door-to-door operations undertaken by an outside political group this cycle.”

Fusion: “How the Latinx door-knocking game could paint Nevada blue

“The canvassers stood out in the Winchester neighborhood just south of the Las Vegas strip. They wore hot pink shirts, and where were the only people walking around outside. Despite the blistering heat, each team of two volunteers managed to knock on three dozen doors. The entire group that went around the city targeting different demographics knocked on more than 450 doors, surpassing their goal for the day.”


Daily Kos: “Massive campaign on the ground and online to defeat Donald Trump

“This level of ground game and advertising could help consolidate Hillary Clinton’s advantage among women and millennial voters.”
