The GOP is worried. They worry that the Kavanaugh nomination is driving women away, creating an even greater backlash against Republicans in the midterm elections.
Female opposition to Trump has already proven potent in races like the Virginia gubernatorial contest last year, when exit polls found that Democratic winner Ralph Northam won female voters by 22 percentage points amid a dramatic suburban swing in his favor compared to 2016 Virginia results.
"What has turned them off the Republican Party is not only the lewd behavior and things that were said by Donald Trump, but as much as anything that the entire Republican Party was willing to look the other way. I think women looked at that and they essentially said, '‘here's no consequences,’ said Alixandria Lapp, the president of The House Majority PAC, a super PAC with ties to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Today, let’s call our Senators and tell them that we’re not standing for a judge who has been hostile to issues concerning voting rights, womens’ reproductive rights, and who has had allegations of perjury and attempted rape brought against him. Call and leave voicemail to express your concerns!
ACTION: Call our Senators and leave voicemail opposing the Kavanaugh nomination AGAIN!
