Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison on Tuesday’s Losses: GOP Candidates Said ‘Very Stupid Things’

This morning on CNN, outgoing Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (presumably coming home to Dallas soon) was asked about the GOP losses in Tuesday night’s election and most especially the way in which Democrats won more support from women.

She said that some Republican candidates said some “stupid” things that “tainted the party.” Hutchison was referring to the strange rape-related comments of defeated Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin and the defeated candidate from Indiana, Richard Mourdock.

“When people go into such personal issues and try to fashion a party around it, it’s very difficult,” she said.
