Mace’s comments come as the GOP is facing an uphill battle in the 2024 midterm elections. Democrats currently control the House by a narrow margin, and they are expected to make gains in the upcoming election.
However, Mace believes that the GOP can win back the House if they focus on issues that matter to women. She pointed to a recent poll by the Pew Research Center that found that 63% of women believe that the government should do more to help working families.
“Women are the backbone of our economy,” Mace said. “They are the ones who are raising our children, taking care of our elderly, and working hard to make ends meet. We need to make sure that they have the support they need to succeed.”
In addition to child care, Mace also said that the GOP needs to focus on other issues that are important to women, such as access to affordable health care and equal pay.
“These are issues that matter to women, and they are issues that we need to address if we want to win back the House,” Mace said.
Mace’s comments are a sign that the GOP is aware of the need to appeal to women voters in the 2024 election. However, it remains to be seen whether the party will be able to successfully address the issues that matter to women.
