“There is all the incentive in the world for us to create the conditions for all of these candidates to continue to vie for women as a constituency and to center their needs,” she said. “I’d be shocked if women’s groups jumped in to endorse a bunch of different candidates… if for no other reason than because we need all of them to center women.”
