The Democrats ran with the “War on Women” strategy against the GOP with some success in recent years.
The party used it against GOP hopeful Ken Cuccinelli in the 2012 Virginia governor’s race. It’s the women’s issues, stupid, they cried, citing “reproductive rights” and equal pay concerns. The phrase gained traction with select voters, so Democrats kept hammering away at Republicans with it.
Flash forward to 2017, and one prominent Hollywood liberal just savaged a GOP woman in ways that hearken back to that battle-tested talking point. Only not in the ways Democrats intended.
