Emily’s List is one of the most radical pro-abortion groups in the country. In order to qualify for an endorsement, candidates must not only support abortion on demand, they must support taxpayer-funding of abortions, late-term abortions and pledge to oppose any limits on abortions whatsoever.

Now, the head of Emily’s List is being mentioned by political insiders as a potential chair of the national Democratic Party, replacing the pro-abortion congresswoman who leads it now.

democratsWhile the Republican Party remains pro-life on abortion and its chairman, Reince Priebus, is pro-life, Democrats continue to be wedded to unlimited abortion any time throughout pregnancy for any reason.

EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock on Monday declined to rule out that she would consider seeking the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee.

POLITICO reported last week that the current chairwoman, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has a strained relationship with the White House and many Democrats and that the Obama administration considered replacing her in 2012. POLITICO and other outlets have also reported that Schriock, a Democratic strategist who now heads the powerful pro-choice group, was on a short list of potential replacements for Wasserman Schultz.

Appearing Monday on MSNBC, Schriock was asked whether she would “ever consider” chairing the DNC. While she praised Wasserman Schultz and said she has not engaged in any conversations with the DNC, Schriock did not explicitly say whether she would be interested in the job.

“There have been zero conversations about the chair,” she said.

When pressed as to whether she would consider the position if there were conversations in the future, Schriock demurred.

“Right now, I’m thrilled about the leadership Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been providing,” she said. “She’s been a fighter for Democrats and a fighter for women and families in Florida. And we just want to continue working with her to win these elections in 2014.”

Although the interview makes it appear there are no talks, it’s a sure bet that there will be talks if Democrats lose the Senate in November, as many election observers predict will happen.
