As the left brainlessly touts the “War on Women” line as if it’s a real thing, their sham has been exposed by the American patriots who came out in droves to vote for female candidates this election season. To pour salt in the wounds of liberals everywhere, the GOP celebrated several momentous wins of female candidates, who helped to take back the Senate.
Mia Love made history when Utah voters elected her as the first black Republican Congresswoman in the history of the United States. The daughter of Haitian immigrants, Love won against Democrat Doug Owens with 50 percent of the vote. Previously the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, Love won the state’s fourth district. She is quickly becoming a rising star in the political arena. Love will be a member of the 113th Congress, which is more than 100 women strong for the first time in American history.
Joni Ernst also celebrated a sweeping victory against Democratic opponent Bruce Braley in Iowa. Retiring Democratic Senator Tom Harkin put his foot in his mouth with a sexist comment about Ernst when he said, “In this Senate race, I’ve been watching some of these ads. And there’s sort of this sense that, ‘Well, I hear so much about Joni Ernst. She is really attractive, and she sounds nice.’ Well I got to thinking about that. I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift or as nice as Mr. Rogers, but if she votes like Michele Bachmann, she’s wrong for the state of Iowa.”
It seems to me that the only ones waging a “War on Women” are the Democrats. Ernst is laughing all the way to Capitol Hill, as she will be Iowa’s very first female Senator. She is also making history as the first female combat veteran to hold a Senate seat. Did I mention she’s a conservative?
West Virginia Republican Shelly Moore Capito was also a driving force in helping the GOP take back the Senate. After Tuesday’s win, she will be the first female Senator from her state. The 60-year-old will replace retiring Democrat Jay Rockefeller after beating Natalie Tennant, West Virginia’s secretary of state. The New York Post ran this bio of Capito in their Wednesday article titled “Meet the Republicans who took control of the Senate”:
In the House, Capito has represented some of the state’s most populated regions, including the capital, Charleston, and the growing Eastern Panhandle. She was first elected to the House in 2000, and was a state lawmaker before that.
Her father, Arch Moore, spent 12 years and three terms as Republican governor in the late 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
Capito has been a staunch critic of the president’s energy policies. The administration’s push to limit carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants faces plenty of opposition in West Virginia, where the state’s southern coalfields are already struggling.
Capito also has voted to repeal the health law.
She has a bachelor’s degree in zoology from Duke University and a master’s degree in education from the University of Virginia.
She and her husband, Charles Capito, have three children.
Then there’s first-time candidate Elise Stefanik, who at 30-years-old became the youngest woman to ever win a Congressional seat. The Republican held a double-digit lead in the race to replace retiring Rep. Bill Owens (D) in New York’s 21st District. In 2006, Stefanik graduated with honors from Harvard, where she received the Women’s Leadership Award. She also served as vice-president of Harvard’s Institute of Politics. Stefanik beat Democratic opponent Aaron Wolf with a whopping 22 percent of the vote.
With all of these female politicians in power, it remains to be seen how the Left will continue to plug the “War on Women.” I’m sure they’ll find a way, though it won’t be founded in logic or common sense.
November 4 was one of the most monumental days for women in the history of the United States, but the mainstream media doesn’t want you to know it; this would blow their entire narrative that women are suppressed. On the contrary, female politicians made history yesterday and the Republicans are now in control of the House and the Senate – I’d say it was a pretty epic day.
Tuesday proved a huge win for conservative values and American ideals. Show these Republican ladies your support in the comments section!
