Shaking my snake-filled head

Patricia, "She-devils." Feminists with "nasty, snake-filled heads." "Career-obsessed banshees." Those are just some of the ways a Republican Senate candidate in Missouri described women. He wants to defeat Claire McCaskill, who we've endorsed for re-election. President Trump has opened the floodgates for people who think this way to run for office. We need to send a message that this kind of disgusting, backward talk isn't the new normal.

Kyrsten Sinema may face Joe Arpaio -- a former sheriff infamous for civil rights violations, racial profiling, and birtherism -- who entered the race for the U.S. Senate in Arizona a mere six months after facing a jail sentence. He was pardoned by Trump. In Minnesota, Angie Craig is running to defeat Rep. Jason Lewis, a conservative radio host who has filled in for Rush Limbaugh and been called a "mini Trump." In his book, Lewis defended slavery, arguing that if gay couples can get married, you can't tell someone else not to own slaves. Seriously -- you can't make this stuff up. These are the candidates running under the Republican banner in 2018. And they need to be defeated resoundingly if we're going to bring basic human decency back into our politics.

Patricia,

"She-devils." Feminists with "nasty, snake-filled heads." "Career-obsessed banshees."

Those are just some of the ways a Republican Senate candidate in Missouri described women. He wants to defeat Claire McCaskill, who we've endorsed for re-election.

President Trump has opened the floodgates for people who think this way to run for office. We need to send a message that this kind of disgusting, backward talk isn't the new normal.

Donate to help elect Claire and all of our pro-choice Democratic women facing terrible Republican opponents.

Of course (and unfortunately), Claire isn't our only candidate who might have to face a Republican who openly embraces such hateful views.

Kyrsten Sinema may face Joe Arpaio — a former sheriff infamous for civil rights violations, racial profiling, and birtherism — who entered the race for the U.S. Senate in Arizona a mere six months after facing a jail sentence. He was pardoned by Trump.

In Minnesota, Angie Craig is running to defeat Rep. Jason Lewis, a conservative radio host who has filled in for Rush Limbaugh and been called a "mini Trump." In his book, Lewis defended slavery, arguing that if gay couples can get married, you can't tell someone else not to own slaves.

Seriously — you can't make this stuff up.

These are the candidates running under the Republican banner in 2018. And they need to be defeated resoundingly if we're going to bring basic human decency back into our politics.
