The end of primary season is nigh, and Republicans are now optimistic their slate of House candidates will yield a net gain of female members in the conference after November.
Republicans are now focusing their efforts on a specific slate of top female candidates with a strong chance of coming to Congress.
On Tuesday morning, a top aide to Rep. Ann Wagner, a Missouri Republican and leading voice in the conference for women, emailed Capitol Hill colleagues and K Street allies to highlight these female candidates, according to an email obtained by CQ Roll Call.
As many of you know, my boss, Ann Wagner (MO-2), and Congresswoman Diane Black (TN-6) have worked over the last year to recruit, support and promote Republican women candidates for Congress across the country, wrote Christian Morgan, Wagners chief of staff.
Project GROW bet on two Florida special election candidates who were unable to win their primaries. And four additional female candidates lost open-seat House primary races in Georgia, West Virginia, and California.

I think Bachmann and Cynthia Lummis are the only women with over 70% Conservative ratings at the different conservative rating groups. Wagner, McMorris, Jenkins and Ellmers are all terrible.
McSally is a RINO using the same methods as McCain.
Kathleen Peters(FL) was pro-Obamacare and pro-amnesty. It is a good thing David Jolly won.
Akin is off the political scene and should never return, but I agree Wagner is not conservative enough. Bachmann is of course retiring, to be replaced by Tom Emmer, who seems just as conservative.
Whats your opinion on Wendy Rogers, running in Arizona I think, against the lesbian?
We had a good one here in FL Sandy Adams that knocked out one of the ‘moderate’ dems for Obamacare in 2010. Unfortunately, our lovely party redistricted her out along with Allen West...the two Florida reps who were not in the slightest concerned about leadership loyalty. I am sure it’s just a coincidence.
Oh, great. It’s Binders Full of Women: The Sequel.
What does being female have to do with anything? Is the GOP doing identity politics now?
Can you say, “pander”?
“The end of primary season is nigh”. I wouldn’t call two months to go and 18* primaries almost over.
* Not including Louisanna which essenatilly does their primary in November.
.... Heck .... I hope the list wasn't circulated in Binders cuz we all know that is sexist according to the Democrats.
