the reality is it does come down to the candidates not the gender. unlike Democrats Republicans vote on principle. AOC is the perfect example. she has the IQ of a potato and yet there she is

Travis Tern also if Republicans voted on principle Trump would not have been elected and more Republicans would leave the party like justic amash just did. Trump has no ideology or principles

Why is a lack of republican women considered a "crisis"? if it's due to discrimination, it is obviously a problem. But. Crisis? What ISNT a crisis anymore?

Panda Listening to the episode, it sounds like the republican party believes it's a crisis because they lost the women vote so bad in the 2018 midterms.
