We Make More Effective Congresspeople (When We Manage to Get Elected)

Regardless of party affiliation, congressional women deliver more federal projects to their home districts and sponsor and co-sponsor more legislation than their male colleagues. In a study that was recently published in The American Journal of Political Science, researchers from Stanford University and the University of Chicago attributed women's political success not to some innate political instinct but to the fact that it's really hard for us to get elected (there are currently 360 men and 75 women in the House; 83 men and 17 women in the Senate). They theorize that women feel immense pressure to measure up, so instead of meeting expectations, we surpass them.

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Barbara Buono will Move All New Jersey Families Forward

BY IN News On 03-02-2013

Following yesterday's announcement by New Jersey State Senate Majority Leader Barbara Buono that she will be running for Governor, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement: “Barbara Buono is the right choice to move New Jersey's middle-class families and small businesses forward from the failed policies of the past. As a powerful, independent voice who has always put everyday Garden Staters first, she has both the experience and the toughness needed to turn New Jersey's economy around and get the state back on track. I am proud to see Barbara announce that she will be running to bring real leadership to the Garden State — because that is exactly what the state needs.”
