Remember Mariannette in Iowa

You’ve heard it a million times.  “Your vote counts in an election.”  Maybe you react in disbelief whenever you hear it, but it’s true!  Many political races decide a winner by a razor thin margin.  Look at Iowa’s Second Congressional District.  A pro-abortion incumbent was retiring, and his replacement was between two women candidates—one pro-life and the other pro-abortion.  The pro-life candidate won by six votes.  Yes, a six-vote margin is sending Mariannette Miller-Meeks to Congress and she’ll be a steadfast defender of unborn babies and their mothers.  This isn’t an isolated incident.  Tight races are more common than you think, so the next time you’re tempted to think your vote doesn’t count, remember Mariannette in Iowa.  Your vote does count!
