Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D.-Fla.)

(CNSNews.com) Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz said the Republican Party “got whiter and more male” while the Democratic caucus is “majority minority and female.”

“Take a good look when the House convenes after this next Congress is sworn in at what our side of the aisle looks like versus what the Republican side looks like. I mean they got whiter and more male, and we now have a majority minority and female Democratic caucus – first time in history,” Debbie Wasserman-Schultz said Wednesday at a discussion hosted by the Emily’s List, a group known for supporting pro-abortion female candidates.

She said when women run for office, “Democrats win.”

“We have to double down in 2014. We’ve got to make sure we recruit more women for office, because It’s not just a slogan that when women run, women win. They do, and when women run, Democrats win,” Wasserman-Schultz said.

The new Congress will consist of 20 women senators and 81 congresswomen – an accomplishment she credited to the efforts of the Emily’s List.

“There is no longer an all-male state legislature anywhere in the country,” she said, adding that “40 percent of the U.S. population now has at least one woman senator.”
