Is it just me, or is our Second District congresswoman sounding a lot like Barbara Boxer? Or perhaps our first — or soon to be — ex-wives?
Miss Harnett County told Yahoo News this week:
U.S. Rep Renee Ellmers says the Republican Party – particularly its men – made “unnecessary mistakes” that cost the party the presidential election.
Ellmers, a Republican from Dunn, was participating in an online Yahoo News chat Thursday about how the GOP can better appeal to women.
She said: “Oddly enough, many of the mistakes were made by the men in our party. And this only fueled the misconception that the GOP does not care about women.”
The GOP needs to focus on winning the economy argument, and less on the social points promoted by Democrats, Ellmers continued. “Women care about how they’re going to feed their families and many other issues, not just their reproductive rights,” she said in the chat. “I continue to remain astonished that Democrats focus on the reproductive issues as if this were the only issue women care about … and get away with it.”
