This week a New Hampshire-based Super PAC launched a website encouraging visitors to play a game slapping the former First Lady and Secretary of State of the United States, Hillary Clinton, across the face.
In 2008, Hillary Clinton was the first woman to win the New Hampshire primary. Jeanne Shaheen is the only woman in the country to be elected Governor and US Senator. Maggie Hassan is the only female, Democratic governor in the country. In 2009 and 2010, the New Hampshire State Senate was the first legislative body with a female majority. And we currently have the first and only all-female Congressional delegation in the country.
While we have made great strides in our state, Super PACs like this join the embarrassing list of New Hampshire Republicans working to turn back the progress we've made. This year alone, we've seen Republican legislators diminish victims of domestic violence, call women "vaginas", and litter the legislative list-serve with racy photos of women.
