The gender electoral gap is important elsewhere, and probably here in NY 23 as well. Without polling data, no one knows how NY 23rd women will vote. Tom has had some missteps:
- Missed VAWA vote
- Seneca Falls Forum
- Minimum Wage
- What else?
These must have set Tom back. How will he respond? Certainly not with a change of mind. Look for phony endorsements, possibly from the Independent Women’s Forum. Look for “bipartisan” bills, doomed to die in committee. What else? Time will tell.
