Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said Republican wins in key Senate races across the country Tuesday marked "the end of the War on Women," with Democrats emerging as the clear losers.
"I think this is the end of the ‘War on Women,' and the Democrats have lost it," Krauthammer said. "They tried it, as we saw, famously, in Colorado. It probably helped to defeat Sen. Udall because it became an object of ridicule. And once you get to that stage, it's over."
Krauthammer said that the multiple political ‘dynasties' that fell during Tuesday's landmark elections–including Michelle Nunn, Mark Pryor, and Mark Udall–marked the end of "pedigree candidates" that pushed the ‘War on Women' narrative too hard.
Krauthammer also noted that gubernatorial hopeful Wendy Davis lost so badly in Texas that it "probably ended her career as a major national figure."
"I think the Democrats are going to learn a lesson from this," Krauthammer said. "There is, of course, an issue on which they can prevail. But if you push it to an extreme where it comes back against you, you've got to drop it."
