Campaigner likened to wearing heels and pearls

As I was watching the rodeo parade Saturday morning, one of Jeannette Wallace’s marching supporters came over and spoke to one of the onlookers in a voice obviously meant for everyone, “Stephanie Richard teaches school and has two young children. How could she possibly have time to be a representative?”  

I thought this kind of sexist campaigning had gone the way of wearing high heels and pearls while sweeping – but, obviously, not in the local Republican party.

Would this Republican campaigner want those standards applied to everyone with jobs and families in her party? Or, only to the females in the Democratic party?
