Statement of California Democratic Party Executive Director Shawnda Westly on Sexist GOP Ad in CA-36 Special Election

We’re shocked and appalled that even a candidate as extreme and anti-choice as Craig Huey would seek to benefit from such a blatantly racist and misogynistic campaign ad. The video is offensive to women of any and all political leanings and has no place in our political discourse.

This ad was clearly designed with one purpose in mind: to help elect Craig Huey to Congress. Until we hear Mr. Huey loudly and forcefully condemn this sexist ad, and the extremist Super PAC behind it, we will be forced to believe that this is but a small window into the dangerous coalition behind the Huey campaign.
