In an email announcing the move, the politician wrote, "With the primary behind us and the general election ahead, my goal is for California's dynamic women to take action. By joining the MEGaWomen we can make the Gold State great again."

The poppy is the central image in Whitman's campaign. According to her website, the blossom embodies everything the woman loves about California, its "prosperity, renewal, [and] unity."
