California nurse union uses women’s suffrage anniversary to take jab at Whitman
Sacramento Bee

The California Nurses Association staged a march and rally Thursday at the state Capitol with a dual message: celebrating women’s suffrage and criticizing Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman’s penchant for skipping elections.

The rally, which drew about 1,500 people, fell on the 90th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
