WASHINGTON - Friday, the Republican National Committee will launch "Women on the Right Unite," a new coalition to corral resources from across the different GOP campaign committees with the mission of better supporting female candidates and lawmakers within the party.
“Women are essential to our success as a Party and as a country,” said RNC Co-Chairman Sharon Day. “Combining all of the Republican resources from committees up and down the ticket, we will ensure we provide our women candidates the support, mentorship and resources to be successful both as they enter politics or seek higher offices.”
An autopsy report commissioned by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus following the election suggested that Republicans needed to change tone to win back female and young voters.
The report also suggested that the party needed to do more to elevate female surrogates within the party and promote women to be included in messaging discussions at the RNC. Announcing the report's findings, Priebus admitted that some "biologically stupid" remarks by GOP candidates had alienated female voters.
