Yesterday, CDA President Natasha hand delivered a thank you card to the College Republican National Committee. Thanking the Republican Party for continuing to show how it’s out of touch with young women.

+ TIME: This is the most sexist Republican ad of the year.
"In case there is any debate about whether 1) Republicans really want young women on board for the midterms and 2) they’re confused about how to do it, the College Republican National Committee ad for Rick Scott will settle the question once and for all.
The ad features Brittany, a young undecided voter, who appears to be shopping for a wedding dress, but she’s actually shopping for candidates for the Florida Governor’s race, get it? Because women don’t like dirty old politics, women like wedding dresses […]
And we wonder why women think Republicans don’t get them.”

The First GOP Debate

Mitt Romney 2016: Who Else is There?

After two straight landslide defeats in presidential election, the Republican Party found itself in desperate need of a fresh face with new ideas and broader appeal moving toward 2016.

Simply put, they need a top tier candidate. But as political forecaster Larry Sabato summed up last week: It’s lonely at the top of the Republican field — like, “top of Mt. Everest” lonely. In our latest shuffle of the 2016 Crystal Ball presidential outlook, we’ve decided that the Republican first tier is…empty. Our Republican friends might object, but deep down, we think they would be hard-pressed to argue for any single name to head this long list.”

All the theoretical GOP front-runners are tainted. Chris Christie, Scott Walker and Rick Perry are mired in scandal. Rand Paul’s political backflips have been dizzying, leading even conservative pundits to raise the question: “Is he jettisoning his worldview to revive a presidential campaign?”

So what savior can be that fresh face that rescues the party for 2016? Why, Mitt Romney of course! You may recall him from his defeat in the 2008 GOP primary, or from his general election shellacking in 2012. But with a complete dearth of serious candidates, what other choice do Republicans have?

So as more and more GOP-ers take the car elevator back to the Mitt Romney bandwagon, let it be known that he indeed has at least some crossover appeal — American Bridge’s own Brad Woodhouse has already endorsed his candidacy. Run, Mitt, run!
