5 Repubs and 1 Dem targeted for abortion vote

Planned Parenthood of Florida is sending mail pieces out targeting five Republicans and one Democrat -- all facing tough November election fights -- for their votes on the bill requiring anyone seeking an abortion to have an ultrasound.

The legislators under fire: Sens. Jeff Atwater, R-North Palm Beach, and Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey and Reps. Gayle Harrell, R-Port St. Lucie, Doug Holder, R-Sarasota, and Matt Hudson, R-Naples and Darren Soto, D-Orlando. All but Harrell face tough re-election battles. Harrell is running for Congress.

The goal, said Adrienne Kimmell of Planned Parenthood, is to "hold elected officials accountable for their votes.''
