Women Rule Primary Night…

From South Carolina to California woman such as Nikki Haley and Blanche Lincoln weathered the storm and came out on top. I’m not so certain it was a gender vote more as a push back from voters to established party candidates.

The irony though is both Blanche Lincoln and Nikki Haley are established party politicians but both were able to run like outsiders in their respective state primaries.
