Preparing Voters for North Dakota Caucus

February 1, 2008

Bismarck, ND – Exit polls of voters in primaries and caucuses held to date all indicate that health care and financial security are two of their top concerns. As the North Dakota caucuses approach, Linda Wurtz with AARP North Dakota says the organization's "Divided We Fail" campaign can help caucus-goers get up to speed on the candidates' positions on these issues.

"North Dakota voters still will have the answers to those questions if they look through the material and they see what candidates have said while on the campaign trail in all these other states."

Wurtz says the top concerns of voters all over the country seem to be the same: fixing our nation's health-care crisis and ensuring all Americans have access to a secure financial future.

"Actually, these specific issues around health care and financial security have become more and more prominent."

Since the effort began last year, several presidential candidates have signed the "Divided We Fail" pledge, including Sens. Clinton, Obama and McCain and former Gov. Huckabee.
