Democrats love to paint Republicans as the party of sexists and racists. Which is easy to do when you’re willing to ignore the accomplishments of Republican women like Mia Love, Susana Martinez, and Nikki Haley:
The first black woman nominee for governor in GA, the first Latinx lesbian nominee for governor in TX, & several women who refuse to be on the sidelines of history — Republicans must have been on the edge of their seats last night. ??#IWillVote https://t.co/6j481g0Xbb

TFW when you’re so committed to diversity that you don’t even realize how sexist and racist you sound.
The fact you don't mention their names in your tweet speaks volumes to why you are promoting them…check off the boxes!

Too bad none of these candidates have names. Just identity politics on the ballot I guess.

Are they qualified or do they just check the right identity boxes? I'm thinking latter based on how you described them here. https://t.co/INvQIx4zCR

Do they have good ideas or did you just check off bullet points for identity politics? My guess is not the former.

Since you listed their identity qualifications, would you be so kind as to list their business/political qualifications and accomplishments so we can have a better understanding of them? Or is it just that they are the correct flavor/color/LGBTQRSTUVWXYZness?

If only she had a name, a platform, a philosophy — anything more than a set of census boxes to check. https://t.co/achgg3NXoH

And yet nothing about their qualifications for office. What was it MLK, Jr. said about not judging one by skin color, etc? https://t.co/ELtFlVV7MX

That's cool. I wonder if they actually have any good ideas or stand for anything. Y'all don't seem big on substance though, so not holding my breath.

That’s probably a good call.
Leading with identity politics, yeah how did that work out for you in 2016?

About as well as it’s shaping up to work out for them in 2018.
