Grimes Embraces Political Upside of Her Gender

The Washington Post notes that Allison Lundergran Grimes (D) is "unabashedly embracing the political upside of her gender," is suggesting that Sen. Mitch McConnell "is not taking this female challenger (or other women) as seriously as he should."

"Grimes's focus on her gender follows years of efforts by other female candidates who have sought ways to be their authentic selves while also setting aside concerns that some voters might have about electing women to jobs traditionally held by men."
