They don’t really count…..
Republicans have little need for women politicians…..
They have few in their party….
The ones they have?
They ignore …
Or just shit all over…..(Prime example Senator Susan Collins)
They will waste to effort to attack ANY Democratic woman politician….
This isn the face of the fact that more women are running for office and more women actually vote then men….
For the past 20 months, four-term Republican Rep. Martha Roby has had to grovel to President Donald Trump to regain her political standing and beat back a primary challenge in her staunchly conservative Alabama district.
Her crime? Standing up for women.
“I cannot look my children in the eye … and justify a vote for a man who promotes and boasts about sexually assaulting women,” the mother of two said in the fall of 2016.
Needless to say, her constituents — many of them Trump-loving Southern men — didn’t like that much. Roby quickly changed her tune after Trump won the presidency, unfailingly praising him and his policies as she went on to survive a primary runoff Tuesday that almost ended her career.
Roby’s plight highlights the unique challenge Republican women face campaigning for office with Trump in the White House. While their female Democratic counterparts have benefited politically from going against the president on women’s issues, GOP women don’t have the same luxury.
“There are ways of disagreeing without being disagreeable … of doing it without making it personal,” said Rep. Ann Wagner of Missouri, one of the most outspoken women in the House GOP Conference, who frequently votes with the president. “A lot of it is in the approach.”
Retiring Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who called Republican women an “endangered species,” was blunter: “The base is with Donald Trump, and he can do no wrong. … He’s going to be hanging on you like an albatross around your neck. Ugh! It is a real knot for female candidates.”….
Donald Trump’s personal ways with women should have been a tip off to Republican women that this was NOT gonna be a good time for them….
