At state and national levels, GOP officials as well as local wingers have a clear new strategy of Whac-A-Woman. Sure, it's easy to note and prove that Republicans hae an active policy of crushing women's rigfhts under terrible laws. That's already backfired enough that they simultaneously deny the obvious and then publicly report they'll change their ways...to recapture women voters.
What about individual, specific women?
We can expect state and national GOP groups to attack femaile Dem candidates. More telling and more intriguing is the preemptive calumny. We can start with Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren, both long-term targets of wingers, conspiracy mongers, and plain crazies. Manufactured, altered and gain-of-truth issues spill from the bag of tricks.
