During Tuesday’s coverage of the 2014 midterm elections on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer explained that the resounding victory for Republican congressional and gubernatorial candidate signified the end of a page out of the Democratic Party’s playbook, which was the so-called claims of a GOP “war on women” strategy.
“I think this is the end of the war on women and the Democrats have lost it,” he said. “They tried it, as we saw, famously, in Colorado. It probably helped to defeat Sen. Udall because it became an object of ridicule. And once you get to that stage, it’s over.”
“I think the Democrats are going to learn a lesson from this,” Krauthammer added. “There is, of course, an issue on which they can prevail. But if you push it to an extreme where it comes back against you, you’ve got to drop it.”
