Democratic state Senate candidate Charles Rudnick reasserted today his unwavering support for a woman’s right to choose and his long history of working for female candidates for office and the issues they champion.

“I will take a back seat to no one when it comes to fighting for women’s rights to choose, to earn equal pay, to receive equal treatment in all facets of the workforce,” Rudnick said.

Rudnick, who is running for the Senate seat representing Newton, Brookline and Wellesley, made his comments after a last-ditch political mailing in the race misled some supporters about his position.

“I have heard from several of my supporters who were confused about a misleading mail piece they received recently from the National Abortion Rights Action League, and I want to set the record straight. The piece, backing my opponent, urges the reader to “Vote pro-choice on September 14th,”” Rudnick said. “Obviously, there are two pro-choice candidates in this race. I will vigorously defend a woman’s right to choose and will oppose any efforts to dilute that right. I have always stood strongly by this position – including during my campaign and when I supported Hilary Clinton and Martha Coakley. A vote for me is a pro-choice vote.”

Rudnick said he first learned about the mailing from a supporter who was so upset that she stopped by his home to discuss it while she was out jogging.

“I’m disappointed that NARAL would distribute a mail piece that so clearly creates confusion on this important issue. I hope it is not intentional,” Rudnick said. “I encourage all with concerns and questions about my positions to contact my campaign.”

Those interested in contacting the Rudnick campaign can call the campaign headquarters (617-559-9801) or send an email to The Democratic primary election will occur on September 14th.
