Correction to the story- This is not about getting "real women" to run,
but about getting "real LIBERAL women" to fun.I doubt if the
folks pushing this gave any support whatsoever to Mia Love's recent
Congressional campaign. I guess they don't want to support people from
certain categories, like being conservative!
There are some wonderful Republican women in this state: Becky Lockhart, Mia
Love, Diedre Henderson, Rhonda Menlove, etc. I don't think the people of
Utah are reluctant to elect women but it may be that fewer women run because of
other commitments they have to family and church.
Perhaps Mia love lost her election...because she raised taxes by 200% and her
district was horribly flooded with little response?Moving on...Sarah Palin ran for VP under John McCain and lost.Hillary
Clinton held the office of Secretary of State.Women's rights do
not need to be a 'Republican vs. Democrat' issue, as women can be
both!Women SHOULD run for office. I see zero reason why not to
encourage women to serve their country in the military or political office.But the fact that Utah is painfully low on women representatives when
the nation is pretty much 50/50?Is truly a shame.
Pagan's back. I missed you. Mia lost because the head of Zions bank
decided to endorse Matheson and all the east side Millcreek people bought that
endorcement.Deseret News Subscriber 2 is correct. This should not
be titled "Real Women". Just Liberal Woment.Plenty of good
Republican women out there, including those in the legislature.
