Republicans Seek to Recruit More Women

National Republicans "launched a series of programs aimed at recruiting more female candidates and getting conservative women involved in politics," the Washington Post reports.

"The efforts come as Republicans continue to trail Democrats when it comes to electing women and also as the female vote continues to tilt toward Democrats. Democrats have four times as many women serving in the Senate and three times as many women in the House, and President Obama won the female vote 55 percent to 44 percent last year -- just one point off his 2008 showing."
