RNC's Flores: Dems Running From Key Issues

By    |   Wednesday, 22 October 2014 12:05 PM

Democrats'  skittishness to discuss key issues in the midterms has benefited the GOP with women and minority voters, according to Republican National Committee Deputy Communications Director Sarah Isgur Flores, who appeared Wednesday on "America's Forum" on Newsmatch TV.

"Democrats haven't wanted to talk about the rising healthcare costs under Obamacare, they haven't wanted to talk about the Carter years' labor force participation rate under Obama's economy, and it's not surprising that women want candidates who will talk about those things," said Flores. "Democrat scare tactics, they've run their course and their credibility is lost with male and female voters."

Across the board, Democrats are facing decreasing enthusiasm from their base heading in to Tuesday's midterm elections, Flores said, particularly among Hispanics.

"Latinos and Hispanics in particular have really stopped trusting this administration," she said. "There's promise after promise, immigration is going to be my No. 1 priority and then he delays his plans until after the election. Regardless of which side of that debate you're on, again it goes to credibility. During election time a lot of promises are being made by Democrats and they're never really coming through on them."

Flores acknowledged that Republicans need to work on connecting with more young people, something the party is focused on.

"That being said, if you're getting your news from 'The Daily Show' it's not surprising that they're taking once side versus the other," Flores said. "We need to do a better job of getting that message out."

Women are playing pivotal roles in elections across the country, according to Flores, who mentioned Iowa's Joni Ernst, who is running for the Hawkeye State's hotly contested U.S. Senate seat.

"She is fantastic," Flores said. "Male and female again, voters are very attracted to her as a candidate and think that she has the right solutions for Iowa."

The same goes for Shelley Moore Capito in West Virginia, she said, while Democratic Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado is succeeding at turning off women voters.

"Sen. Mark Udall has been running nonstop ads trying to scare Colorado voters and Cory Gardner, our candidate, has come out and just said it's not true, here's what I actually stand for and at the same time I have a plan for jobs, I have a plan for the economy, for energy in Colorado that Mark Udall's scare tactics are really backfiring in a state like that with women," she said.
