The Real Party Of Women: GOP More Than Doubles Female Candidates In House Races

The Republican Party is evidently committed to sending more women into Washington D.C. as they have more than doubled the number of female candidates they have running in congressional races.

As the Hill reports, in the previous election cycle, Republicans had 48 women running for seats in the national legislature. In November, they will have 103 women running to represent districts across the country as they seek to maintain their majority over Democrats hungry to regain control.

“The number of female candidates on the Republican side doubling is not an accident,” GOP strategist Matt Mackowiak said, via the report. “That is a result of a disciplined effort to recruit strong female candidates, both from the party directly, but also from outside groups that believe female candidates give them a better chance to hold, and perhaps expand, their majority.”

Here’s more:

The recruitments could be crucial in a year where the majority is likely to be decided in suburban swing districts where college-educated women and independent voters form a crucial voting bloc.

Democrats have been busy attracting candidates in those districts, too, as the #MeToo movement and furor surrounding President Trump’s policies energizes the left.

According to the report, the record-breaking recruitment of more female candidates can be attributed to the youngest woman ever elected to Congress: Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik.

Per the Hill:

After House Republicans struggled to add female members to their ranks in the last election cycle, Stefanik, 33, was tapped to lead candidate recruitment for the House GOP’s campaign arm, becoming the first woman to ever hold the position.

Some of the most hotly contested House seats this election cycle feature women running on the right, including the races to replace retiring Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), Ed Royce (R-Calif.) and Dave Trott (R-Mich.).

“We’ve seen an intense level of interest from Republican women in running for Congress this cycle, and some of the strongest candidates we have running currently are females in competitive districts,” National Republican Congressional Committee Jesse Hunt reportedly said. “It’s a testament to their backgrounds, their careers, and their ability to communicate the Republican message.”

And:

Part of the reason, she says, is that women are now able to witness other prominent female Republicans who are able to balance their busy congressional careers with other duties, like being a mother.

Rep. Martha Roby (R-Ala.), for example, was connected with House GOP Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), a working mom and the only female member of leadership, before she came to Congress.

Maggie’s List has now endorsed 49 House, Senate and state-wide candidates this election cycle — a record-high for the organization. That includes Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-Ariz.), who recently won a closely-watched special election in Arizona; State Del. Carol Miller, who emerged from a crowded primary field to clinch the GOP nomination for West Virginia’s 3rd District; and GOP businesswoman Lena Epstein, who co-chaired Trump’s campaign in Michigan.

The November congressional elections will undoubtedly be one of the most important elections of the Trump administration as Democrats will look to halt the Trump administration from overturning major Obama-era legislation. As Trump continues to cut taxes across-the-board and renegotiate international trade agreements, should Democrats win a majority, they will undoubtedly look to intervene as well.

Democrat Congressman Al Green has already promised he will file articles of impeachment should his party regain a majority, another political situation the Trump administration would undoubtedly wish to avoid.
