• DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz’s Response to Breitbart News’ Offensive Ad

    In response to Breitbart News’ offensive characterization of Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:

  • This Week in the GOP’s Outreach to Women

    Earlier this year, the RNC released an Autopsy Report on the party’s failings in 2012 where they pledged to change their ways and reach out to groups, like women, that they had alienated by the party’s rhetoric and policies. Their report stated that the Party needs to develop “a forward-leaning vision for voting Republican that appeals to women [and demonstrate] that our policies, principles and vision address the concerns of female voters.” How’s that effort coming?
