Senate Democrats’ fundraising email warns GOP control could repeal voting rights

The Hill estimated the Democrats as narrowly favored to retain control of the Senate in November, but Carville indicated that a majority flip is a real threat, not only to Democrats but to women.

He also honed in on Democrats recent message that the Republicans have declared a war on women due to policy battles over contraception and abortion. Carville suggested that GOP presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum both wish to roll back womens rights.

When the moving crews leave, we’d have a President Romney or President Santorum with a Senate suited to the 16th century and Karl Rove and the Kochs on speed dial, he wrote. Heck, you ladies might be lucky to keep your voting rights.

Republicans have made a similar argument in urging supporters to donate, emphaizing the need to maintain a majority in the House and retake the Senate and warning that there needs to be a legislative wall around the White House.

Republicans have also pushed back hard on claims that they have a war on women, but leveled the same charge at President Obama.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has a million-dollar fundraising goal, and Carville is asking for donations to help keep the Republican riffraff out of the neighborhood.
