Crossroads Calls on Senate Candidates to Return Hilary Rosen’s Reprehensible Cash

Candidates Silent on Rosen’s Belittling Comments About Moms

WASHINGTON – American Crossroads today called on Senate candidates to return contributions they have received from Hilary Rosen – the Obama and senior Democratic Party advisor who disparaged mothers last night on CNN.   Tammy Baldwin (WI), Sherrod Brown (OH), Bob Kerrey (NE), Maria Cantwell (WA), and Debbie Stabenow (MI) have received contributions from Rosen.

Rosen, a consistent Democratic campaign bankroller, said that Ann Romney, a stay-at-home mother of five, had “never worked a day in her life.”

“These candidates should immediately return the thousands of dollars in campaign contributions received from Hilary Rosen because of the insulting and insensitive comments she made about mothers,” said Nate Hodson, American Crossroads director of state and regional media relations.  “If they return the thousands received from Hilary Rosen, the candidates would make it clear to voters that they do not approve of Rosen’s baseless comments about moms.”
