WASHINGTON Once, California Democrats led the way to a year of the women. Now, nearly two decades later, Republicans hope it's their turn.
Meg Whitman won the party's nomination for California governor on Tuesday and Carly Fiorina will carry the GOP banner into the fall campaign for a Senate seat, a pair of wealthy businesswomen and first-time candidates running against veteran politicians in a year of palpable anti-establishment sentiment.
In next-door Nevada, a third woman contender, Sharron Angle, won the right to oppose Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the fall.
And hundreds of miles to the east, South Carolina state Rep. Nikki Haley outpaced three male rivals in a race for the GOP gubernatorial nomination. Shy of a majority, she will face Rep. Gresham Barrett in a June 22 runoff in a solidly Republican state.

I heard Michael Steele broke out his “I’m a Republican” act again for Fox this morning.
Okay, what's up with the play on words here?
I noticed that.
And in 2011, a woman Presidential candidate.
And in 2012, a woman President.

Well.....now that will depend upon whether We the People will continue to allow our country to be stolen from us....
Republicans.. the party that empowers women.
This article makes it sound like the Republicans in California are 20 years behind the Democrats when it comes to empowering women. But the Republican women made it big on their own, they didn’t need a rich husband to launch their polical careers, unlike our current senate delegation.
“California Republicans tap women .... “
Two words: Yahoo News
I know a person who works at HP. You can’t mention Fiorina without this person suffering convulsions. The woman was an incompetent CEO, and HP is still dealing with the repercussions as a result of her ineptitude.
