It’s been a banner week in the GOP’s outreach to women… The GOP Autopsy Report: “Be conscious of developing a forward-leaning vision for voting Republican that appeals to women. The Republican Party needs to offer that same vision and message demonstrating that our policies, principles and vision address the concerns of female voters.”
Yet just this week we saw:
In Kentucky - Mitch McConnell's allies at the NRSC tweet an extremely offensive and sexist photo of senatorial candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes
In Texas - Tea Partier Rick Atkinson referred to State Senator Leticia Van de Putte as "barrio boopsie," insulting both her gender and ethnicity.
In Louisiana - Senator Mary Landrieu’s main opponent, Bill Cassidy’s campaign manager tweet a photo of the Senator’s face superimposed on the body of Dictator Mussolini.
And Rush Limbaugh decided that a comparison to rape would be the best way to explain yesterday’s rule change in the Senate.
Women have already rejected the Republican P
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Applauds Defeat of Abortion Ban in Albuquerque Following the announcement of referendum results in Albuquerque, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released this statement:
"The rejection of an extreme abortion ban by voters in Albuquerque is a resounding victory for the right of women to make their own health-care decisions.
"The measure put before Albuquerque voters was unnecessarily restrictive, making no exceptions even in cases of rape or incest, and inserting government in a very private and personal health decision best left to a woman, her family, and her doctor.
"Forty years after the Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade, it's a shame that we must continue to fend off attempts to curb access to health care for women.
"This vote and its outcome is yet another reminder that we must remain vigilant and engaged, never taking our rights for granted and being steadfast in support of organizations that provide essential women’s health-care services."
A Big Week for Data and Technology This has been a big week for data and technology in the Democratic Party. The DNC, our candidates, and state parties are now getting access to new data assets that the Obama campaign built to help win the 2012 election. This is great news and yet another way that our party is building on our technological lead over Republicans.
While we’re getting access to new data, the way we’ll apply it isn’t new. In both 2008 and 2012, the DNC worked hand-in-hand with the Obama campaign to create the tools that collected and analyzed information about volunteers, supporters, and donors, and helped them run the most data-driven campaign to date.
And our commitment to technology innovation didn’t begin with electing President Obama. In 2005, we committed to build the Democratic Party in all 50 states and equip everyone with the know-how, tools, and data needed to win campaigns. That’s exactly what we did in the run-up to 2008, and we haven’t taken our foot off
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Statement on Senate Vote to End Nominee Obstruction In response to the Senate’s move to reform the filibuster and allow most presidential nominations to be confirmed by a simple majority, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:
“Today, in response to unprecedented Republican obstruction, the Senate made an important rule change, which will ensure that most judicial and executive branch nominees can be confirmed with a straight-forward and commonsense up-or-down vote. This change will help President Obama, and future Presidents of both parties, put their teams in place, and allow all of us to get to work for the American people.
“While today's vote is an important step forward in ending the gridlock that has unfortunately become a hallmark of today’s Republican Party, we have more work to do. The American people have made clear that they are not interested in rigid partisan obstructionism. Our constituents expect their elected officials to work together on the issues that mat
