That’s a scary thought.
WASHINGTON — Speaking to a gathering of EMILY’s List supporters, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz stressed that Democrats would capitalize in 2014 on the gains they made with women in 2012.
“We have to double down. We have to double down in 2014. We’ve got to make sure we recruit more women to run for office,” she said. “Because it is not just a slogan that when women run women win. They do. They do. And when women run Democrats win.”
A record number of women will serve in the 113th Congress, including 20 in the Senate and 81 in the House. [...]
Wasserman Schultz, a Florida congresswoman herself, added that while Republicans got “white and more male” the Democratic side of the aisle became more diverse. “We now have a majority-minority-and-female Democratic caucus,” she said, for the “first time in history.”
