Jacobs' comments came less than a week after news broke that the National Republican Congressional Committee met with aides of incumbent lawmakers to coach them on "messaging against women opponents," according to Politico.

That meeting showed how top Republicans are taking extra steps to prevent a repeat of some of the more crippling gaffes Republicans went through in the 2012 election cycle, including Rep. Todd Akin's (R-MO) comments that the female body can naturally shut down a pregnancy that resulted from "legitimate rape." The comment was considered to be one of the major contributing factors that sunk Akin's Senate campaign for Sen. Claire McCaskill's (D-MO) Senate seat.
