Election 2013: Big Wins for the Women!

Everyone expected Chris Christie to bulldoze over Democratic challenger Barbara Buono in his re-election bid last night: After all, outside of New Jersey, did anyone even know her name?

Shockingly, the United States is 78th in the world when it comes to female representation in our federal government. This is simply unacceptable and is one of the reasons I started Off The...
