CPACer On Women's Issues Panel: No Stupid Comments This Time Please


Obenshain added that it's important to avoid comments that play into the "War On Women" attack against Republicans.

Her comments are a clear reference to crippling statements like the ones made by then-Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) during the 2012 election cycle.

Near the end of the panel Obenshain also urged white men in the party to take a step back and let conservative women take points on talking about contraception and other women's issues.

"White men stay behind, let the women talk about this issue. We love white men. We love all the white men," Obenshain said before adding that it's important for women to talk about those issues.
