• Krauthammer: “This Is The End Of The War On Women, And Democrats Have Lost It”

    When you tally up all the Republican women who won big on election night, it’s easy to agree that the Democrats’ “War on Women” campaign has lost political steam.

    Nikki Haley won in a landslide in South Carolina. Susana Martinez easily won reelection as Governor of New Mexico. Republicans in Iowa elected their first female candidate to the U.S. Senate. In New York, Republican Elise Stefanik destroyed her female Democratic opponent to become the youngest woman elected to Congress in history. In Utah, voters sent the first ever female Republican to Congress.

    Now Charles Krauthammer is taking these and other GOP victories as evidence that “the end of the War on Women” has been reached.

    “I think this is the end of the ‘War on Women,’ and the Democrats have lost it,” Krauthammer said. “They tried it, as we saw, famously, in Colorado. It probably helped to defeat Senator Udall because it became an object of ridicule. And once you get to that stage, it’s over.”

    Krauthammer also said that Wendy Davis–who couldn’t even win over a majority of women voters in Texas–got beat so badly in that it “probably ended her career as a major national figure.”

    “I think the Democrats are going to learn a lesson from this,” Krauthammer said. “There is, of course, an issue on which they can prevail. But if you push it to an extreme where it comes back against you, you’ve got to drop it.”
