Democratic groups that support Hillary Clinton and focus on women’s issues have taken the gloves off against Sen. Bernie Sanders, a move aimed at undercutting his support among liberal voters, particularly younger women, days before the Iowa caucuses. The groups, including NARAL Pro-Choice America and Emily’s List, have seized on a comment by Sanders last week lumping them and other groups into the much-maligned “establishment” column, which he did in an effort to dismiss the importance of their support for Clinton. Clinton, too, has contributed to the jabs, albeit more subtly. “We all need a champion in the White House, and not just someone who says the right things, but someone who does them as well,” she said in New Hampshire on Friday at a dinner marking the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
