As Donald Trump targets women, Republicans say he could cost the party everything
March 26, 2016 - Uncategorized
Christine Matthews, a longtime Republican strategist whose work focuses on convincing other women to vote Republican, felt good about her party’s progress with female voters after the 2014 midterm elections.
Republicans added women to their ranks in the House and Senate, and even defeated a Democratic senator in Colorado who had made the so-called “war on women” the hallmark issue of his campaign.
But two years later, as GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump continually makes misogynistic comments on the trail, Matthews said she feels any progress made with women has been erased.
