Republican women and the Senate
Regarding the editorial "Women Surge Ahead," June 5: The implication that the Republicans are lagging in nominating women for the Senate and for other public offices is unfair and untrue.
Did the Monitor print a similar editorial in 1990 when six women ran for the Senate as Republicans? How many of those who today are trumpeting the advances of women (and who bemoaned the dearth of women in the Senate during the Thomas-Hill hearings) took notice in 1990? And how many supported any of those Republican women in their races for the Senate? Albert Cole Jr., Las Cruces, N.M.
