I think it is important to point out that the very first woman appointed to the US Senate was a Democrat by the name of Rebecca Latimer Felton. On this date (November 21) in 1922, Senator Felton was appointed by the Georgia Governor as Georgia's Senator due to the recently deceased Thomas Watson.
So, add this to the arsenal of the Democrat Party when they inform you that the Republicans have a "War on Women" on their agenda. The Republicans could have been the first political party to welcome a female into the hallowed halls of the Senate. Alas, it was not to be.
The Democrats brought us Senator Rebecca Latimer Felton. Hooray!!!!
