The picture on the @LadiesGOP account — which shows Democratic Reps. Donna Edwards (Md.) and Susan Davis (Calif.) sitting alongside Ellmers and Noem at last month’s charity Congressional Women’s Softball Game — had a few of the Twitter account’s more than 500 followers doing a double take.
Ellmers spokesman Thomas Doheny called the snapshot a “great picture” in a phone chat with ITK. When asked why two Democrats would be displayed so prominently on a GOP committee’s page, Doheny noted the forefront shows his boss and Noem, saying, “I think most people would be curious as to why we would cut out other members.”
He added, “We constantly change the pictures to keep the Twitter feed fresh and new.”
Edwards’s and Davis’s offices did not respond to ITK’s request for comment.
